Hi,

I'm sorry for hurting you.

Is "hurting" a participle or a gerund here?

I guess a related question is, "Is 'for' a preposition?" If so, that answers my first question! Emotion: big smile

Many thanks! A.

Hi,
Yes, it's a preposition

Consider this.

I'm sorry for hurting you.
I'm sorry for the hurt.
I'm sorry for the problem.
