Gerund Infinitive and Participle
Gerunds, Infinitives, and Participles are all types of verbs. A gerund is a verb that ends with -ing (such as dancing, flying, etc.), that functions as a noun. An infinitive is a verb that is preceded by the word “to” (such as to run, to fly, to play, etc.). A participle also ends in -ing like a gerund, but it does not function as a noun. Instead, they form the progressive tense of a verb. They can sometimes function as an adjective, but not always.
