    I do enjoy your grammar-oriented videos Adam, but I had had to watch some of them more than twice, I must confess.This one was not the exception to the rule, by the way.

    Writing academic reports demands the use of formal language and more complex grammar patterns. This lesson provides a useful tool to do so.

    Very useful lesson indeed.

      Gee! Making mistakes as usual. I had no time to proofreed my comment:

      ” . . . but I have had to watch some of them . . . ”

      Does it sound much better now to you Adam?
      Thanks in advance for your feedback.

        Hi Regino,

        I see you’re a perfectionist :). Have had is correct given that this one is not an exception. Otherwise, had had would have worked but implied that this one was easier ;)

At last I understand the difference between adverb participle and adjective participle, and now I see that the same sentence can be understood in two other ways. And what you said about adding “while” in the beggining of a sentence, it’s something new for me, but I thing it really can help to speak in clear way, especially for beginners. Good work Adam!Your grammar lessons are the best on engvid. As always, thank you.

Profile photo of HubertPoland HubertPoland

    Thank you Hubert.

    Just keep in mind that when speaking you can bend the rules more than when writing, so there is less pressure to use these perfectly and sometimes people might confuse you.

I have realised that the questionary hasn’t been so difficult to understand that the video class explanation. I have had to listen to it twice to make sure that I had understood all the concepts but I think that I will go back to listen to it again, more than twice although it hasn’t been very complicated to understand the meaning, but to use the strict grammatical rules when participle sentences are used. Thanks a lot, teacher Adam, we have learned and enjoyed another lesson which enriches our knowledge and the good sense of the English language, very useful as always.

Hi Adam, thanks for your work. I got 6 correct of 9. In the second quiz, I noticed you added a complement explanation, which is an adjective clause. But what if I understand it like this: After Cal was dressed in his finest clothes, he went to the party with high confidence. Am I right this way? I still got a sentence, please correct me if I am wrong. “How did I manage to get up at 8:30 while sleeping at 4?” Thanks again!

Profile photo of wdlll wdlll

    HI Wdlll,

    You need to be careful with this change:
    After Cal was dressed in his finest clothes, he went to the party with high confidence.

    Grammatically, it is correct. However, the meaning changes. Firstly, you’ve introduced a time sequence (after). Secondly, saying ‘he was dressed in” means that someone else put clothes on him (passive verb). To keep it active, you would say “After he dressed in his…” and to make this a participle you would say “after dressing in …” or having dressed in …”.

    Sorry if this is confusing.

    As for the other sentence:
    How did I manage to get up at 8:30 after going to sleep at 4? or
    How did I manage to get up at 8:30 having gone to sleep at 4?

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Thank you Adam :) I have one question using a conjuntion with an adverb clause. Can I use another conjunction besides WHILE, such as because, although, if, follwed by a participle-ing or ed?

Because loving super high speed, I got an accident by a super car.

Profile photo of smet smet

    Hi Smet,

    No, in the case of because or although, the relationship must be very clear and the conjunction removed (reduced). If the relationship is not clear, then you would have the conjunction, which would then require the full clause.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the lesson! I was wondering if you could say more about contexts of use for these sentences. In other words, could you give us the key to know when we can use the adverbial or relative clause at the beginning of the sentence and when we have to leave those reduced clauses just next to the modified noun?

Best,

Profile photo of Cristianrj Cristianrj

    Hi Cristianrj,

    Firstly, you never have to use them. They just make the writing more interesting and add variety. The key is to make sure the subject of the clause (even if reduced) is the same as the subject of the independent clause.

    Feeling angry, the boss yelled at everyone. — the boss was feeling angry and he (the boss) yelled.

    As for adjectives that modify nouns, these are reduced clauses that reduce to just one word, and then this word acts as a regular adjective.

    Not sure if this actually answers your question, though.

Dear Sir

I want to know the difference in present participle and past participle in a sentence started with present and past i.e
1.Providing the information, I went to office….(I provided… or I who was provided)
2.Provided the information, I went to office (I who was provided the …)
pls tell the difference

Profile photo of errajeev2005 errajeev2005

    Hi errajeev2005,

    Firstly, it is not past and present, but passive and active.

    As for the examples, the first doesn’t seem to make sense as is. If you write, ” Providing him with the information…” then it is is more clear.

    The second– Provided with the information, I went… — means that someone gave me the information I needed.

    Does this help?

      Good question Katrin,

      Actually, there is no rule. You will hear native speakers use both. I don’t really think about it when I say it, though I think I tend to use ay more than ee.

      Profile photo of Adam Adam

        Thank you!

        Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Well, these are not used ONLY in present perfect, but when related to the present, they don’t need a time expression. For example, single-celled organisms evolved into more complex creatures millions of years ago. (simple past).

    regardless, I will make a list of more of these types of verbs ;)

    They are both correct. I am your English teacher means that this person is leading this subject. I am your teacher of English might imply that this person is teaching you the language.In most cases, the first will used for both situations.

Adam one question more. In American English I sometimes can hear using ON instead of IN(AT).
For example: “How many players ON the team?”,
“Good luck ON school!” etc. Could you do a less-
on about the differences of using them by British and Americans or give me some more information
about it? Thanks.

Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hmmm. on the team is correct (though in a group or band, but on the committee).

    On school I’ve never heard. With, at, yes, but never on.

    I will see if this lesson hasn’t already been done and get back to you.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      (Good luck ON school!) I’ve read it under one of American teenagers video.(without doubt this guy is about 12 and speaks American very good on his video).
      I’ve heard British people say “How many players in your teem?” a few times.(And somewhere in the textbook too)

      Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

        Also I’ve heard about the next difference (on the street(American)/in the street(British).
        What about that?

        Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

          Yes, British and America English do have these differences (in on the street), and in the team (I would use this to refer to members of a team in business or school, but in sports, they are on a team).

          English can be strange :)

    A participle is a type of phrase that contains a participle (active or passive) and can be an adjective or an adverb. An adjective phrase describes a noun and an adverb phrase completes a verb.

Hi, I have a question which confuses me. Question is that If I can change this sentence from “The boy that went to Canada is getting used to his new life.” to ” The boy gone to Canada is getting used to his new life.”

As I wrote that I am confused about this because I am not sure whether I have to use -ed phrase for “be v3” or “v1”

In fact, Does “The boy gone to Canada is getting used to his new life” always mean “The boy who is gone to Canada is getting used to his new life” ? or can we say “The boy who went to Canada is getting used to his new life.” ?

Hello, Adam. First, thanks a lot for the very clear explanation of particles in English. I have the one comment and the one question.
1. In the quiz, we have the question:
“Dressed in his finest clothes, Cal went to the party with high confidence.
What type of participle is ‘dressed’?”
The possible answers are the following:
“present participle adjective
past participle adjective
past participle adverb
present participle adjective.”
I believe the fourth choice being the same as the first is just a typo. Am I right? Or, it is put here intentionally, isn’t it?
2. Here is my question. In scientific papers, I often meet the phrase ‘the data obtained’. For instance, ‘The data obtained show that this value is increased.’
What is the difference between ‘the data obtained’ and ‘the obtained data’?

Dear Sir, Adam,

Please, accept my heartiest gratitude for your unique and outstanding lectures, based on various aspects of English language teaching and learning methodology.

I think, you don’t know how many ESL, ELT students and teachers are being benefited by your lectures. It’s truly unbelievable.
I’m trying my best to enrich myself from your lectures which are uploaded in “EngVid” and “Write to the top” websites.

Thank you for your endless help for non native learners.

At last, please accept my apology for my poor writing skills.
I’m trying my best to get the speaking fluency and writing accuracy.

Thank you very very much, Sir!

Many thanks, Adam for the great lesson. I have a question: When we need to change the passive to the active while we put the participle at the begining of a sentence (for instance: realized to realizing)?

Thanks for brilliant lesson. I have a query…

Main Sentence: The loans, which was distributed from early 2018, the loans were accompanied by a Dollar 15,000 grant to each farmer to buy seedlings from Govt. nurseries.

Short Sentence: Distributed from early 2018, the loans were accompanied by a Dollar 15,000 grant to each farmer to buy seedlings from Govt. nurseries

now can i say this short sentence as reduced adjective clause as well as past participle in passive sentence? Seeking your guidance here.

Thanks Adam and I have a question:
“ But officials remain optimistic, saying they are confident the rail link will not incur a loss.” Is “saying”in this sentence a participle?
Thank you.

This is my first time taking the airport train.

I meet this sentence while learning English. I guess this sentence ommited some connections. What is the structure of this sentence. Is this adverb participle?

Hi Adam! Thank you for the great work you do for all of us. I am sorry, bu I am lost in the participles, clauses and gerund. Could you tell me what is the difference between: participles and subordinate clause? And what is the difference between active participle and gerund? Thank you.

I am still not sure when participle phrase functions as adjective or adverb. Can you make it clear?

Hi Adam. Great learning from you. I`ve been learning a lot with all of you guys. Keep on doing these amazing videos.

Profile photo of Ivomar Ivomar

Does adverb participles function as adjective modifying subject in main clause? My teacher call it verbal phrase. Does particle phrase function as adjective all the time?

Thanks, Adam, Although I made 100% in the quiz, I am still confused and want to practice more. Can you make one more lesson on it?

Hi Adam. Could you tell me the difference between the object complement and the object of a possessive.(Different ways to use a GERUND). How to identify object complement from others. I’ve found this on Engvid.

1.I saw Jim riding his bike (obj.com)
2.He doesn’t like your bossing him around (obj.of a possessive)

And could you please explain to me the difference between these sentences.(The grammar point)

1. I saw Tony riding his bike.
2. I saw him riding his bike.

3. I saw you coming.
4. I saw you were coming.

5. I saw Tony was riding his bike. (Is this actually a reduced adjective clause? Not sure…)

I’m sure some sentences are wrong, but not sure which ones. Not much information available regarding this on the internet.

Thank you Adam, and love your work. And thanks for the reply on my last question.
THANK YOU :)

Hello Adam,
Thanks for you lessons.
I’d like to ask about putting participles with a conjunction, would that be OK

Profile photo of pavelkondrin pavelkondrin

Hello Adam,
Thank you so much for you lessons.
I’d like to ask about putting participles with and without a conjunction, would that be OK if we wrote without a conjunction:
targeted by media, she refused to cooperate
and she, targeted by media, refused to cooperate,

Hi Adam.
I think even without adding anything in the sentence about “Scoring a touchdown,….”, the meaning is still still complete.
Am I missing something?

Hi Adam,

I just so confused about how this sentence “Being unsure of what to do next, Paul decided to wait for his boss to give him instructions.” is changed from its adjective clause, could you help me with that, thank you.

Sir, I know the logic in this lesson but, is always verb past form will always consider participle?
