Gerundive

Post by Tarew » Fri Jul 03, 2009 12:56 am

Hey,

I was wondering if someone can help find the answer for me. I am trying to transliterate what an Italian gerundive is in English and when you would use it instead of the infinitive in Italian grammar.

example: dormire / dormendo; vendere / vendendo

Thanks.
