Thats-me Group Title

Is the capitalized sentence below a gerund phrase participial phrase or infinitive phrase? LIVING IN SALT LAKE CITY was Laetitia’s dream. And is the caps phrase below used as an Adjective, Noun or an Adverb? FRUSTRATED BY THE WOMAN'S RESPONSE, the border guard repeated his question. Thanks!

    @TuringTest Anybody? I have a difficulty understanding the difference between gerund phrases and participle phrases.

    I'm really not the best guy to ask on this, I hate terminology, but stuff with "-ing"=gerund, generally for the other: adjective=description noun=person, place, thing Adverb= I forget :P but being frustrated seems rather descriptive to me

    "infinitive" is without a time period, as in "to run", "to jump", "to think"... as opposed to "ran" (past tense), "will jump" (future), "is thinking" (present tense gerund) I can't say I'm positive about the answer to the first one, but use what i said to make a decision... or wait for a better answer. Or look up more info yourself!

    I think adverb are the "-ly" forms, like "quickly", "deftly", "promptly", etc. I refuse to Google it :) and you're welcome!

    OK! The first one is a Gerund (you were right=) And the second was an adjective (He was frustrated) so that solves it=) Thanks again=)
