GERUND adalah bentuk kata kerja pertama + ing ( V1 + ing) yang berfungsi sebagai kata benda. Oleh karena itu semua kedudukan atau fungsi kata benda (noun) bisa kita gantikan dengan gerund (V ing). Selain itu kapan dan dimana kata benda itu muncul boleh dan dapat juga kita gantikan dengan gerund (V ing). Di sisi lain INFINITIVE disebut juga bentuk kata kerja pertama (V1) atau kata kerja dasar. INFINITIVE dapat kita kelompokkan menjadi dua yaitu infinitive with to / to infinitive (TO V1) dan infinitive without to/Bare infinitive/ simple Verb ( V1)


Fungsi kata benda/ Gerund:

a.    Sebagai subjek

Biasa   :  Mr. Is9ni       makes                         me       happy
                 S                    V                    O
Gerund            : Swimming     makes me  happy, bukan Swim makes me happy
                   S                  V        O
Dari contoh di atas, subjek kata benda (Mr. Is9ni), dapat kita gantikan dengan kata kerja “swim” dengan cara menambahkan –ing pada kata kerja tersebut, menjadi “swimming” karena kata kerja tersebut berfungsi sebagai subjek.

b.    Sebagai objek transitif

Biasa   : Reni   likes    ice cream
                S        V              O
Gerund            : Reni   likes    going to school  bukan Reni likes go to school
                S        V               O
Dari contoh di atas, objek kata benda (ice cream), dapat kita gantikan dengan kata kerja “go to school” dengan cara menambahkan –ing pada kata kerja tersebut, menjadi “going to school” karena kata kerja tersebut berfungsi sbg objek kalimat.
c.   Sebagai objek preposisi/setelah kata depan ( in, at, on, by, with, without, of, off, before, after, for, about, from, to, up, etc.)

Biasa   :  I am interested in English
Gerund            :  I am interested in singing “Tombo Ati”

Biasa   : Mr. Dhany is afraid of dog
Gerund            : Mr. Dhany is afraid of leaving this country.
