    Gerund phrases begin with a verb form and are used as subjects and objects.

    Why don't you post a few sentences with gerund phrases and try to identify them. We'll be glad to check your work.

    OK Thanks. Here are the questions given to me:
    1. Cheering the team gave me a sore throat.
    a.Cheering
    b.Cheering the team

    2. My uncle is taking up a new kind of exercise, walking.

    Can someone please check my above post about gerund phrases? Thanks!

    Yes. Both are correct. Of course, your second sentence only has a gerund, not a gerund phrase.

    Oh, I thought so. ^_^
    Thanks!
