    Will you kindly help me to paraphrase the sentence (use gerund):
    Why tell you lies!
    actually, I have to translate it. the russian variant is "ну и зачем говорить тебе неправду!"
    thank you!

    Re: gerund

    The Russian font you chose doesn't come up.

    Lying isn't ...
    Lying doesn't ...

    Why would I lie?
