    Gerund/participle
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 27-11-2019 at 21:47:35 (D | E | F)
    Hello
    Please any one could guide and tell me what the idea is ?
    Here in this page it says :
    Forms of gerund Link

    Having worked for twelve hours, I felt tired. (Perfect active)
    She is angry about having been criticized. (Perfect passive)
    Everybody is desirous of being praised. (Passive)
    Not knowing what to do, she started crying. (Negative)

    In another page I read: consider these forms are participles.
    So, which is correct?
    For this sentence says : After playing for an hour, he went home. (Playing present participle)
    OK I agree with
    Thank you in advance

    Hello.
    I think there is a mistake in the title of that paragraph :
    Forms of gerund. No! Various ING forms

    Having worked for twelve hours, I felt tired. (Perfect active)(participle)

    She is angry about having been criticized. (Perfect passive) gerund

    Everybody is desirous of being praised. (Passive) gerund

    Not knowing what to do, she started crying. (Negative) participle

    Thank so much dear teacher gerondif

    So, what about the other sentence ( After playing for an hour, he went home.)

    Is ( playing ) participle or gerund ?
    Thank you very much in advance

    Hello
    Thank you again
    After (she had been) playing for an hour, he went home.( Present participle)
    This is correct and clear 100 %
    --
    Also if you say :
    After playing for an hour, he went home.( Present participle)
    non-finite a sentence ( verbal non-finite ) I know
    And your analysis is correct ( it is understood ) that he who did the action.
    After he had played \ had been playing for an hour, he went ...
    Finished action
    Anyway ( the phrase modifies ) the subject pronoun ( he)
    Thank you very much dear teacher( gerondif)
    I got it
