Is questioning a verb or noun?

User Avatar
"Questioning" is the present participle or gerund form of the verb "question", but in a sentence, the single word "questioning" or a phrase introduced by this word usually functions as a noun element (for the gerund) or an adjective or adverb element (for the participle.)

The word collaborate is a verb, meaning to work jointly on an activity, to work together to produce or create something; to cooperate with an enemy occupying one's own country.

What have you that has not been given to you?

User Avatar
The Answer is Shining in Your Eyes Remove the scales from your eyes my brothers - you can't do it alone! 1 Corinthians 4:7 - For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? What you have you did not earn but was given to you by God. You think you are perfect --- you are not, and neither am I. Spread the good news that Jesus is the answer! Matthew 7:7 - Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Another Answer What have you that has not been given to you? Nothing. EVERYTHING resides in the mind of God.

What is the past participle of am?

User Avatar
"Am" is the first person singular present indicative form of "to be", for which the past participle is "been". Fundamentally, only infinitive verbs have past participle's; therefore "am", which can not be a proper infinitive, does not have any past participle.

Is caused a linking verb or action verb?

User Avatar
it can be either, depending on its usage... in most cases however, it is an action verb, even if it is in a progressive tense... e.g. "She was caused to school by her plantation owner when her first year of ownership had come caught by a suprise Negroe teacher at the local school" (yes, they used to write that way.) In this case, "caused" would be an action verb in a past progressive tense. Note: I don't intend to offend anyone by this writing... I am simply trying to convey an example of the word "caused" in a past-progressive tense, in a style of writing that had been used in previous eras. Past progressive tenses are not as commonly used in the modern age of writing as they had been in previous eras.

How do you use advertise in a sentence?

User Avatar
Advertise is a verb in any sentence. I would like to advertise my products on the front door of your market. If you advertise your yard sale, it will bring a lot more people to spend their money. The current ban to advertise tobacco on TV will soon include billboards. Be careful about what you advertise. She lets others advertise the fact that she is a genius. Be wise; advertise!

How can you tell if your wife lies about where she's been and what she's doing?

User Avatar
Vague question...leads to vague friendus. Aside from the physiological changes associated with lies - it is tough. If you're married, you're more than likely going to pick up on some tell-tale signs that are out of place - but if you're really concerned: you can hire a private detective to track her. If you're expecting an affair to surface, you can do things like: Check milage on her car in the morning and then ask what all she did... add up the numbers. Check credit card and bank card statements... Look through her purse, wallet, and car for things that are out of place - reciepts for two from resturants, gas from out-of-the-way places etc. Just be prepared for the backlash - if you are wrong, you'll be branded as a paranoid, posessive, jealous person for the rest of your marriage without some excellent reasons for going through her stuff. <br /><br /> If you are not a very insecure person to begin with, your gut could be telling you something.<br /><br /> If you're asking this question, I must ask if you yourself are lieing about where you go and what you do. If you do it, you start thinking that they do it. And that is probably not the case. Another way to tell if your wife is lieing about where she is going and what she is doing is to look for other lies about other things.<br /><br />Generally if a woman will lie about one thing then she will lie about another. If you have been married for very long,then you probally have children. If so; then ask your child questions about what they did for the day and where they were? You might be suprised what you can learn from them. Word your questions carefully and you could be very suprised what you might learn from someone so young and innocent.Also;Remember they have no reason to lie. <br /><br /> NOTE: All of these methods involve a GREAT deal of distrust and should only be done as a last resort.
