Homework Help: English

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 2:13pm.

To clarify my question before,

I am diagramming sentences. When diagramming, verbs and gerunds go in very different spots. in the sentence Philip is planning a party, it could either be Philip | is \ (gerund goes a stand) planning | party. Or, it could be Philip |is planning| party. Many setences are like this. How can I always tell whether a word ending in ing is in progressive tense if it has a form of "to be" (is planning) or a gerund (is | planning).
