Present participle

From Teflpedia

The present participle (/presənt pɑ:tɪsɪpəl/) is an -ing word that is used as a verb. For example: "reading" in "you are reading". The name is misleading because the meaning does not necessarily refer to the present, and various alternative names have been proposed. It is used generally to indicate the progressive/continuous aspect, using auxiliary be.
