Participle Clauses

Publicado: 23 octubre, 2013 en Exercises, Grammar

 

They are used after a noun in the same way as relative clauses. Participle clauses give more information about the noun. (participle present verb+ing)

Ex: The woman eating pasta is a friend of mine. (The woman who is eating pasta is a friend of mine).

We often use the -ing form (gerund) after conjunctions and prepositions (after, before, when, since, once, without, in spite of…)
