What is the adjective of the verb?

The participle of a verb or Participles is a form of verb that is used in a sentence to describe a noun, noun phrase, verb, or present phrase, and assumes the role of an adjective or adverb. The descriptive aspect, if it has a present tense, is the noun of the subject and the noun of the object, and if it is descriptive, it is the adjective of the subject and the adjective of the object.

The structure of an adjective form, like a verb, has two aspects, known and unknown. The adjective form is made in two ways, one by adding ing to the end of the verb and the other by adding ed to the end of regular verbs, and irregular verbs should be memorized only by memorizing and practicing. The infinitive is called present participle or the definite article and the ed is called the object noun, which is used in the known as well as the unknown.

1- present participle

By adding ing to the end of the verb, an adjective can be created. The present tense always ends with ing. This adjective can be used as an adjective to explain nouns in a sentence. Consider the following examples.

The winning athlete gets a trophy.

We met a girl carrying a basket full of vegetables.

2- Past participle

Ed can be added to the end of regular verbs to make them descriptive. Consider the following example.

Deceived by his friends, he committed the crime.

tip:

It may end with ((n, -d, -en, -t)) to make the past participle of irregular verbs.

Swollen- burnt- hoped- broken.

3- perfect participle

The combination of having together with the third form of the verb forms a complete adjective. Example:

Having rested for a while, we continued our journey.

The importance of learning adjectives in English

Although descriptive is one of the advanced grammars, it is necessary to learn and master it. High usage, making a variety of sentences, shortening sentences when needed, and also showing the high level of your grammar are some of the reasons why this is so important.

tip:

When the sentence begins with a descriptive phrase, be sure to remember that the implicit subject of the first part must be the same as the subject of the second part of the sentence.

Adjective role

Ali who was standing on the balcony could see the entire garden.

Standing on the balcony, Ali could see the entire garden. (Right)

Standing on the balcony, the entire garden could be seen. (Incorrect)

The role of the captive

If they were given the option, many people choose money over knowledge. (Conditional adverb clause)

Given the option, many people choose money over knowledge. (Conditional adverbial participle)

tip:

If you are in doubt between adjective and adverb and want to use an adverb, use the while while at the beginning of the sentence.
