The gerund is the verb form ending in -ing which acts as a noun. The one word riposte "Gerund" by some self-satisfyingly smug pedant indicates an abuse in its usage. It often muddies the intended meaning, and makes one want to lamp the complainant.
"The gerund is the verb form ending..."

"...the verb form's ending. Gerund."

Jamaican dialect usage


Old English pronoun + verb.


We a-walking to school. Reminiscent of Shakespeare's stylistic poetry.

(Extract from an Appalachian English song)

On the Seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me. Seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying.

(Extract from a nursery rhyme ca. 1905)
I saw the ship a-sailing, a-sailing on the sea, and oh!It was all laden, with pretty things for thee!

Influenced modern day Patois slang.

This usage fell into disuse in modern English and is now regional or dialectal. A similarity in usage can be noted in the European Portuguese language structure.
A + verb (no gerund)

We a walk to school.

She a talk to all of them.

Gerund are real and they are derived from verbs but function as nouns(I know, impossible, right). However, gerunds are actually upside down. This is because the earth is a cylinder and gerunds are from Australia, the bottom of the cylinder, therefore making the, upside down. This claim is supported by scientists, geographers, and LA teachers from around the world.
I have a gerund phrases quiz tomorrow.
