Gerund dan Active Participle memiliki bentuk yang sama, yaitu kata kerja bentuk "–ing" Sekalipun bentuknya sama, keduanya memiliki fungsi yang berbeda. Dari segi arti, gerund mengandung makna "peristiwa yang sedang berlangsung".

Sedangkan active participle adalah kata kerja dalam bentuk "–ing" dan artinya menunjuk kepada aktivitas yang bersifat aktif (melakukan pekerjaan).

Contoh kalimat:

1. The running boy is anwar, (active participle)
(The boy who is running is Anwar= Anak yang sedang berlari itu Anwar)

2. The running shoes are very expensive.(gerund)
(Sepatu yang digunakan untuk berlari itu sangat mahal)

3. The walking man wants to meet you. (active participle)
(orang yang sedang berjalan itu ingin menemuimu)

4. The old man needs a walking stick. (gerund)
(orang tua itu memerlukan tongkat untuk berjalan)
