What Are Gerunds and What Are They Good For?

Gerunds (verbal nouns) are formed, like present participles, by adding -ing to the end of a verb. They can be used anywhere a noun can be used; e.g., as subject or object of a verb or as object of a preposition. Directions: Convert the first sentence or sentences into gerunds and insert where the large "THIS" appears is the final sentence.
