I'm a non-native English speaker and have recently come across a phrase, also written by a non-native English speaker, that puzzled me:
Automatic creating tasks
(this is the name of a software feature that creates multiple tasks based on some pre-defined values (you don't have to manually create each of them))
It seems 100% incorrect, but I can't figure out why. Or is it me who is incorrect thinking the prase is wrong? Can someone give me a hint?
My suggestion is that the gerund can't be modified by an adjective and followed by a noun...
