A participle is just a infinitive verb + ing right?
A participle is also used as an adjective a lot of the time right? For ex:
"She looks at the rising sun". The present participle here is an adjective here right?
The participle can also be a noun right? For example:
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall".
So "failing" and "rising" seems like verbs to me. How can you help me see these words as nouns? I don't get why they are nouns.
