 Looking at Verbs, Nouns, and Gerunds

Often a verb has a distinct noun form that is used as a subject or object. However, when a noun implying action is needed, we use the gerund. Study these examples.

EXAMPLE 1: The company was successful due to its tight organization.

EXAMPLE 2: Organizing one's priorities is necessary for success in business.

All of the verbs on the chart below have a noun and a gerund form.  Fill in both forms and learn to spell these words. If you can't guess, type in a question mark and then hit enter.
