I'll be grateful for your help.
Is it possible to use -ing forms after the verbs "ban", "prohibit" and "forbid", for example:
1)The government bans funding such organizations.
2)The state prohibits using such technologies.
3)French law prohibits denying the Armenian henocide.
Thank you very much for help.

  • English -

    Yes. All are correct.

  • English -

    All of your -ing words are gerunds and used as nouns. They are direct objects in these sentences.
