@MerianosNikos- at the risk of being persnickety, the word is "phrase" not "phraze", even though the sound is certainly /z/, a voiced silibant.

comment “Enthused” vs. “enthusiastic”
A participle can be part of a verb phrase. It is derived from a verb but not one itself. You may even say that both act as nouns in your sentences because of the copulative verb. Back-formation: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back-formation

comment “Comparing” vs “A comparison of ”
That's a good point, Chan-Ho. Sometimes there is no clear alternative to a gerund that is not circumlocutory. (As an aside, he would probably advise that no one irritate him.)
