In this sentence, the noun savings is in plural form:
I have one savings account.
It is like a gerund or maybe it is a gerund, I am not clear about it. But when I searched the Internet, I found somewhere claiming that a gerund is always singular, but somewhere else claiming that some gerunds do have plural forms.
I am confused. As far as I understand it, saying that a gerund is a verbal noun means that it is a verb as well as a noun at the same time, but that it is also not a noun.
The Internet suggests that gerunds iwth plural forms like drawings, meanings , and so one do not seem to be gerunds at all but they do seem to be nouns.
I want to know:
Do gerunds have plural forms? If so, could you please give me some examples?
Are the nouns drawing, meaning, etc. actually really gerunds, or are they actually really nouns?
What is the difference between a gerund and a noun?
