    They are verbals. In the second sentence, "baking in the oven" is a phrase. The verbal is "baking."

    Gerunds act as nouns. Participles act as adjectives. Which kind of verbal is "baking?"

    In the first sentence I think it is a noun but in the second sentence I think it is an adjective? Is that correct?

  • English -

    Right.

    What about this one.

    Seeing the old slides remind reminded me of the good times we had.

    The verbal is seeing and it is a gerund?
