Review gerunds
Review Gerunds your paper horizontally 4 times (should look like above chart only with larger squares).

1.) A gerund functions nominally as the subject of the sentence.

Examples:

-Giggling over gerunds makes grammar fun!

-Drinking hot cocoa on a cold day is delightful.

-Since Joe was five years old, swimming has been his passion.

Quick Test: Replace the gerund phrase with “it.”

-It makes grammar fun!

-It is delightful.

-It has been his passion.


2.) A gerund can also function nominally in the sentence as the direct object.

Examples:

-I love drinking hot cocoa on a cold day.

-Joe hates swimming at five in the morning.

Test: Locate the verb in the sentence and ask what?

-love what?

-hates what?


3.) A gerund can also function as the object of preposition.

Examples:

-I cheer myself up on a cold day by drinking hot cocoa.

-Joe reconciles his hatred by missing most five am practices.

Tip: find the prepositions, then find the gerund phrase


4.) A gerund can function nominally in the sentence as an appositive.

Examples:

-My favorite winter activity, drinking hot cocoa, warms my soul.

-Joe’s passion, swimming at five pm, will never die.
