Note, The Gerunds of Verbs are rendered by the Infinitive Mood, with di, nel, col, a, da, per, or other Article before them, See Ch. IV. Rule 16. &c. Gerunds also are sometimes taken in an abfo. lute Senfe ; as, avendo a scrivere, having occafion to write.
Verbs, are formed as in Englia and French, that is, by bringing the Tenses of the Auxiliary Verb Havare to have, to the Participle Common of other Verbs, as is before observed in this Grammar, Page 39, and in my Rules for the French Tongue. Example,
Ho amato I have loved, &c. Imperfect Havbuo amato I had loved, Edo. Future Havero amato Ithall, or will have loved,
And the like, in other Compound Tenses, formed of this Verbs Havere, and the Participle Passive or Common.
The Verbs in arı, are all conjugated alike, except four, that is, andare, dari, fare, fari, of which hereafter.
Note also, That the Auxiliary Verb Hà I have, forms the Compound Tenses of the Active Voice, and Sono I am, with the Participle Common, forms the Passive Voice of Verbs.
