The gerund is simply the “-ing" form of a verb. Remember that it is not a verb unless it is preceded by the conjugated verb “to be" (in the present or past continuous tense). Gerunds are very popular because, as we have said, most students assume they are actions.

Sample Usage

I am smoking too much. (verb)
Smoking is a cultural taboo. (noun)
Look for the smoking gun. (adjective)
