Mensagem:  I didn't intend the question to be rhetorical, in fact. I'm not a grammar maven. If you are saying that the terms "present participle" and "gerund" should be replaced by different words, that is fine with me. And no, I don't dispute the fact that an inappropriate grammar system has been veneered to our hybrid tongue. It is only since studying Portuguese that I have come to put much analytical thought toward the grammar of English, so I am still largely unaware of the full extent of it's mis-application.
