    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.

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

  • Grammar -

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

    Oh, I thought so. ^_^
    Thanks!
