hi, My english professor, distined to make us great speakers in the future, is teaching us about present and past participle sentences. He says, writing in these two types of sentences along with other clauses and modifiers that we are learning, will make you sound very intellegent if you use them in formal writings, essays and other formal speeches. So, there you have it. i will provide some examples and i gaurantee you will learn it in no time..

►Past participle phrase=Cyan

Sam is like a lion on the football field, feared by the defensive line.

Humans need love, nourished and encouraged by the affection and charity of their fellow travelers to the grave.

We are pilgrims in this life, called from fairyland to struggle through dark ways.

►Present participle phrase=LIGHT GREEN

Sam, throwing the football to his friend, seems to be enjoying the lovely day.

The stars, flaming in the deep heavens, fill Mankind with wonder; and as humans grow, searching for love, truth, and beauty, they must never lose sight of these “ever fixed” marks that “look on tempests and are never shaken.”

Horatio catches sight of King Hamlet’s ghost, wondering that such things should be.
Hi
Sorry, but your colours do not seem to show in your post.

Your English profesor sounds like he has good ideas, so be careful to listen to him.

In Horatio catches sight of King Hamlet’s ghost, wondering that such things should be, in terms of grammar do you think it is Horatio or the ghost who is doing the wondering?

Best wishes, Clive
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"have been" should only be used for plural subjects.
e.g.
I have been studying for 4 hours.
He/She/It has been studying for 4 hours.
They have been studying for about 12 hours.
You have been studying for 5 hours.
I have been thinking since yesterday.

"had been" should only be used for past tenses.
She/He had been doing that for a long time.
They had been driving for 11 hours.
I had been accused as a nurse.
THey had been blind ever since they were a child.

Hi,

is there a past participle for "can not" ?

Only verbs have past participles. eg cook/cooked

There is no verb in your example.

Perhaps you are thinking of eg 'Yesteday Mary could not cook dinner'.

the past tense of eat is eaten because the future have before the past tense .the past tense of found is found because t don"t change it stays the same .my question is what are the past participle of all the words.

Hi,

You seem to be mixing up the Simple Past tense and the past participle.

the past tense of eat is eaten No, the Simple Past tense for 'eat' is 'ate'.

eg He ate dinner at 6 pm yesterday.

'Eaten' is the past participle.

eg He has eaten dinner.

because the future have before the past tense .I don't understand what you mean here.

the past tense of found is found because t don"t change it stays the same

No, the Past tense of 'find' is 'found'.

The past participle of 'find' is also the same, 'found'.

my question is what are the past participle of all the words. Here is a list of 211 verbs.
