Participles are verbs that behave like adjectives in that they describe nouns

  • Participles are verbs that behave like adjectives in that they describe nouns

  • English examples include:

    • Running water > cf. English verb to run
    • Sleeping children > cf. English verb to sleep
    • Hired hands > cf. English verb to hire
    • Arrested thieves > cf. English verb to arrest
    • Participles are helpful because they allow us to express a lot of meaning in fewer words. For example: The arrested thieves stood trial. Instead of The thieves who were arrested stood trial. It doesn’t save a lot of space, but it gives utterance a higher, more erudite style.


Элен была так хороша, что не только не было в ней заметно и тени кокетства, но, напротив, ей как будто совестно было за свою несомненную и слишком сильно и победительно действующую красоту. Она как будто желала и не могла умалить действие своей красоты.

    • ‘Helen was so beautiful, that not only was no shadow of coquetry noticeable, but, rather, it was as if she were ashamed of her indisputable and incredibly powerful and conquer-inducing beauty. Is seemed as if she wanted, but could not diminish the effect of her beauty.
