Another kind of verbal is a gerund.  Bowling is a very old sport.  Gardening is a satisfying hobby.  Collecting baseball cards can be a lucrative pastime.  A gerund is the present participle of a verb (the  –  ing form) used as a noun.  In a sentence a gerund can function in all of the ways that a noun does.  Subject:  Reading is my favorite activity.  D.O. :  I enjoy reading.  Object of Preposition:  Today is a good day for reading.  Predicate Noun:  My favorite activity is reading.   To determine whether a word ending in  – ing is a verb, participle, or gerund, you must see how the word is used in the sentence.  First find the simple subject and the simple predicate. They will help you know whether a word is a gerund.
