I have to identify the verbal phrases (and verbals) and

for participles determine whether they are present, past, or irregular.

For gerunds whether they are subjects, direct objects, predicate nominatives, or objects of prepositions.

And finally for infinitives determine whether they are nouns, adjectives, or adverbs.

There are 25 sentences and I did my best, but please help me make any corrections necessary. I will bracket the verbal phrases and put the verbals in parenthesis, and in "{" (forgot what they are called) I will label them as I said above.

DO- direct objects, PN - predicate nominative ect...

1. "I'm [(leaning {G-DO}) toward [(seeing {G-OP}) the fish] at Bonneville Dam," Biff declared.

2, "I don't like [chopping (kindling {G-DO})]," moped Yahoo.

3. The [(hooked {P-PAST}) salmon] fought hard.

4. [(To peer {I-N}) through the fast [(moving {P-PRESENT}) water] is difficult.

5. "I wish [(to go {I-N}) (sledding {P-PRESENT})] on the snow!" Twisp grinned.

6. High water [(running {P-PRESENT}) through the valley] flooded the [(disappointed {P-PAST}) farmer's land].

7. "[(To be {I-N}) strong] I work out at lumberjack skills," Rocko boasted.

8. The [(depressed {P-PAST}) button] ignited the outdoor lighting.

9. Squirrels munched the [(discarded {P-PAST}) potato chips].

10. Leenda was happy [(to help {I-ADJ}) with [(cleaning {G-OP}) up the [(remaining {P-PRESENT} garden-fresh salad].

11. Biff went [(to work {I-adv}) at the Dairy Freeze] then studied math and its [(challenging {P-present} algebra problems].

12. Leenda was hopeful [(to hear {I-adv}) that snow was forecast].

13. Cleaning the road, the snow plow rescued many [(stranded {P-PAST}) motorists].

14. "I'm going [(fishing {G-DO})]" said Rocko.

15. The water was too high, so the crafty salmon wouldn't strike the [(fishing {P-PRESENT}) hook].

16. The [storm-(beaten {P-IRREGULAR}) cabin] held strongly against the [(pounding {P-PRESENT}) rain].

17. Taking the turn too sharply in the [(slickened {P-PAST}) snow], Suzy's car slid into a [(hidden {P-IRREGULAR}) ditch].

18. A [(shivering {P-PRSENT}) Rocko] took an hour [(to dig {I-ADJ}) Suzy out].

19. "For cooking pies I like [(to make {I-N}) thick crusts]," Suzy advised.

20. The [(growing {P-PRESENT}) trees] were felled by [(chainsawing {G-OP})]

21. [(Setting {P-PRESENT}) off from the bridge], the sailboarder hit the river's big waves.

22. The way [(to navigate {I-ADJ}) the national forest] is [(to do {I-N}) a good examination of USGS maps beforehand].

23. Rocko, [(sweating {P-PRESENT} and (exhausted {P-PAST})], took a brake from [(chopping {G-OP})].

24. "[(To sew {I-N})] requires a sure hand," giggled Twisp.

25. "[(To live {I-N}) honorably] is [(to do {I-N}) what's right]!" affirmed angelic Leenda.

This took me so long to write and thank you so much in advance for helping!

Hello Tanooka,

Here are some you might want to look at again:

1. "I'm [(leaning {G-DO}) toward [(seeing {G-OP}) the fish] at Bonneville Dam," Biff declared.

13. Cleaning the road, the snow plow rescued many [(stranded {P-PAST}) motorists].

15. The water was too high, so the crafty salmon wouldn't strike the [(fishing {P-PRESENT}) hook].

Feel free to post revisions!

Best wishes,

MrP
