Kita sering mendengar kata gerunds, tapi apa itu gerunds?

Singkat dan mudahnya, gerunds merupakan kata kerja yang bertindak seperti kata benda. Bingung?

Gerund dan present participle sama-sama diakhiri dengan +ing, tapi keduanya berbeda. Perbedaan keduanya adalah present participle tidak bertindak sebagai kata benda (noun), akan tetapi bertindak sebagai modifier atau pelengkap dari kata kerja progressive. Sedangkan gerunds merupakan kata kerja yang bertindak atau berperan sebagai kata benda.

Langsung saja ke contohnya ya:

  1. Swimming in the ocean has been Sharon’s passion since she was five years old.
    (Berenang di laut menjadi hasrat Sharon sejak ia berusia lima tahun).
  2. Let’s go dancing at the club tonight.
    (Mari pergi berdansa di klub malam ini)
  3. Andi likes sleeping.
    (Andi menyukai tidur)
  4. Everybody needs shopping.
    (Semua orang perlu belanja)

Pada kata di atas, gerunds ditandai dengan imbuhan +ing di akhir katanya seperti swimming, dancing, sleeping, dan shopping.
