Comic #2475

1 Mercutio: Hmm. "Magic: the Gathering", "Hunter: the Reckoning", "Mage: the Awakening". There are lots of fantasy games named as "Noun: the Verb".
2 Shakespeare: That really should be "Noun: the Gerunding".
3 Ophelia: "Gerund" isn't a verb to be... um... gerunded.
4 Mercutio: You can gerund any verb!
4 Shakespeare: But only after verbing the noun.

A gerund in English is a noun formed from a verb by the addition of the ending -ing, and possibly some subordinate qualifier words to form a noun phrase.
