S A verbal is a word formed from a verb but functioning as a different form of speech.
You can think of verbals as actors on stage. Actors put on mask and act as different people rather than who they really are. Verbals look like verbs but act as different parts of speech. http://www.towson.edu/ows/verbals.html A Gerund is a verbal ending in -ing that
functions as a noun. Like an ordinary
single word noun, a gerund may be used
as a subject, direct object, or an appositive.We form a gerund by adding -ing to the simple form of the verb.
Jumping on the bed was a bad idea.
Jump was the verb and it acted as the subject and noun of the subject. Ing was added to Jump. Participles A participle is a verbal that functions
as an adjective. There are two types of
participles. A present participle and a past
participle. A present participle always ends in -ing. It is created from the form of a verb used with the verb, to be ( am, is, are, was, were, been) as an auxiliary verb (progressive tense). Removing the auxiliary verb and using the -ing form of the main verb as an adjective produces a present participle. Past participles, usually ending in -ed or -en, are created from the form of a verb used with the verb to be as an auxiliary verb (passive voice). Removing the auxiliary verb and using the -en form of the main verb as an adjective produces a past participle. INFINITIVES
B An infinitve is a verbal formed by placing to in front of the simple present form of a verb.
Examples: to sing, to breathe, to hug Infinitives may function as adjectives, adverbs, or nouns. Thanks For Watching~! xo
