We’re not; but others do, and in less than a week we will have disbanded. so BEWARE!
Thanks @stephen: that’s what I was thinking of.
Will post a note to self somewhere obvious and try not to ask again.
[The root cause of my confusion is that I was taught that in English the gerund is a present participle used as a noun: Swimming is a sport, and the gerundive is a present participle used as an adjective: The swimming girl is strong.]
Yes, I find it confusing as well, and was taught about the ‘gerund’ in English grammar just as you describe.
However, I only know the ‘gerundive’ used in the Pali way via Latin, as Ven. Khemarato mentioned above.
It is important to know these terms since they were used by Rhys-Davids and Stede in PED.
I can’t remember off hand what Margaret Cone uses.
