Gerunds

في الجمعة مارس 12, 2010 4:59 am




  1. Gerunds

A gerunds is the -ing form of a verb, used as a noun. A gerund is
used in the same ways as a noun, i.e. , as a subject or an object of a
verb. A gerund is also frequently used as the object of a preposition.
Examples :
- I enjoy doing my job as a blogger. (object)
- Improving their writing skills is a must for journalists. (subject)
- Sue is in charge of organizing the meeting. (object of preposition)
- Typing is the one task she hates most. (subject)
Verbs that are commonly followed by gerunds :
enjoy, quit (give up), postpone (put off), consider
(think about), appreciate, finish (get through), delay, discuss (talk
about), mind, avoid, keep (keep on), mention, suggest, resent.
2. To Infinitives
Some verbs are followed immediately by a to infinitive.
Verbs commonly followed by to infinitives :

hope, decide, offer, appear, expect, need, plan, promise,
refuse, pretend, love, like, intend, agree, seem, ask, want.
Examples :
- He likes to work until late at night.
- Babang loves to hum while he is working.
- We agreed to pay for all the damages caused by the fight.

Some verbs are followed by a (pro) noun
first, and then an infinitive. The (pro)noun acts as an indirect object
of the verb. Verbs followed by (pro)noun first, then infinitive : tell
(someone), ask (someone), order (someone), allow (someone), remind
(someone), need (someone), invite (someone), advise (someone), expect
(someone), force (someone), warn (someone), require (someone), permit
(someone), encourage (someone), like (someone), want (someone).

Examples
:

- I reminded him to bring along his CV
to the interview.
- She encourages him to take up the challenge.
- Without her parent’s consent, she invited everyone to come to her
house.

Some verbs can be followed by either a
to infinitive or a gerund with no difference in meaning. These verbs
are :


begin, can’t stand, like, continue,
hate, prefer, start, can’t bear, love.

Examples
:

- I started to work last Monday.
I started working last Monday.

- I can’t bear to sit behind a desk from
9 to 5.
I can’t bear sitting behind a desk from 9 to 5.

Some verbs can be followed by either a
to infinitive or a gerund, but with a difference in meaning. These
verbs are :


remember, regret, forget, try.
[/b]

Examples
:

- Babang often forgets to wear a tie at
campus. forget infinitive = forget to do something
- He ‘ll never forget coming to this office on his first day of work.
forget gerund = forget something that happened in the past.
