動名詞 gerund 與現在分詞 present participle (pp)，兩者拼音完全相同，如何區別如何運用，有些母语是英文的人，也🈶️難題。下面容我試用例句解釋。
Seeing is believing. 兩者都是動名詞。
Swimming is my favorite exercise. 這個 Swimming 是動名詞。
The children are swimming in the pool. 這裡的swimming 是 PP.
looking forward to seeing you. Looking 是 pp. seeing 是動名詞。
to + 動名詞 = 對 to 某件事或觀念gerund 來說，一個人的心態或事物的本質如何如何，而不意謂何時會有什麼行動。這類句子中的 to 是介系詞，其後所接的字或片语，應該是名詞或動名詞，做為 to 的受詞。
很多人寫或說 Looking forward to see you. 這句中的 see 該用 seeing 的理由：與你會面，是一回事，不是動作，也就是說與你會見seeing you 這回事，正在期待著 looking forward。
