Advanced English Grammar on Verbals (Infinitive-Participle-Gerund)
There are a number of highly useful words in English that are difficult to classify as parts of speech. These are infinitives, participles, and gerunds. They are called verbals because all of them are formed from verbs. Like verbs they may all be modified by adverbs.
However, each of the verbals has other characteristics. The infinitive may be used as a noun, an adjective, or an adverb. The gerund is used as a noun. The participle is used as an adjective.

Watch out for my upcoming FREE lecture on PHONETICS. I’ll be using TONGUE-TWISTERS and choice passages for my AUDIO/Video demo. A lot of us including veteran English teachers are having great difficulties in producing the right and clear sounds when pronouncing words. The question is, “Is it still possible to change/improve on ACCENT, PRON, voice quality, and projection?” The answer is YES! There is still hope especially for those non-English speakers with heavy, heavy native-tongue accent! :-)
