Another grammar question from me... I need help understanding gerund phrases. I know the meaning and everything there is just no easy way for me to spot them..any help for me? Thanks
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.
b.Cheering the team
d.a sore throat
2. My uncle is taking up a new kind of exercise, walking.
c.taking up a new kind of exercise
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. ^_^
