    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ... are Gerunds. A Gerund has Case like a Noun (and is thus 1 See "Notes for Teachers," p. 324, Note 30. distinguished from a Participle).

A Gerund is frequently preceded by a Noun or Pronoun in the Possessive Case; as, " I am tired of his coming here;" "John's saying what he did annoyed them."
