I said:...But it was a great show. Gale fucking like beast in the beginning. The Canadian party (Emmett in plaid should be made criminal!). Dr. Dave's possessiveness really came out finally (I mean, really, change flight arrangments without even a "mother, may I"? Bad manners, Dr., very bad manners). The prom scene was very sweet (although a bit sugary for my tastes).
1. So noun+ ving +noun ---->can used as a sentence, as noun, as individual, without following by clause or modifying some word?
2. Is it participle phrase or gerund phrase?
3. Is it the same case as "Michael and David disagree about Michael puttting up his posters"?
1.So after you change the punctuation[:] In your opinion, what does the sentence be?Tdol said:Not really; I'd change the punctuation:
But it was a great show: Gale fucking like a beast at the beginning.
a.gerund ---Gale's fucking like a beast at the beginning
b.participle ---Gale who is fucking like a beast at the beginning
c. headlines/scene title ---progressive form without verb to be
d. Something else. Please tell me what is it.
2. Is it the same case as 'Brian setting up Ethan' in the below article?
Brian setting up Ethan: another great bit of filmmaking, played beautifully, in the middle of a not-good episode. Brian's careful timing, pulling out his business card right after Justin walks in, giving Ethan just enough time to realize . . . followed by that Brian smug smile of nasty satisfaction. Good stuff from Fab, here, too, as he realizes what's happened. And his run for the exit - as in, "let me get away from these two crazy people!" - is darkly funny.
