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."
