Participial Phrase DIRECTIONS Copy the Definition and Rules into your own notes to use as a future reference. DEFINITION An Participial Phrase is a verb that also works like another part of speech. Participles show action, so they act like verbs, but they also describe, so they act like adjectives. Present participles always end in -ing. Unlike -ing main verbs, which cannot be removed from a sentence, participles are removable. Example: Verb (not removable): He was clearing his throat loudly. Present Participle (verbal, removable): Clearing his throat loudly, he stepped out from behind the bookshelves. Participial Phrase DIRECTIONS Copy the Definition and Rules into your own notes to use as a future reference. The Difference between present participles nad gerunds: Like present participles, gerunds (pages 54-57) are verbals that also end in -ing,

but it is easy to tell the difference. Present participles are removable sentence parts; gerunds are not. Example: Participial Phrase: Feeling so much better after the nap, Gunster dressed and went out. Gerund: Feeling so much better after the nap relieved Gunster. Participial Phrase DIRECTIONS Copy the Definition and Rules into your own notes to use as a future reference. Past Participles usually end in -ed. Unlike main verbs, which cannot be removed from a sentence, past participles are removable. Note: Most past participles end in -ed; others- by far the minority- end in -en (forgiven) or end irregularly (sung). Verb (not removable): A wide pink ribbon was tied in back with a bow. Past Participle (verbal, removable): Around her waist was a wide pink ribbon, tied in back with a bow. Participial Phrase DIRECTIONS Listen as I read each of the following sentences and
