Verb form V5 (the –ing form) 5/5 (1)

There can be up to five different forms of verbs, usually referred to as V1, V2, V3, V4 and V5. Verbs are simply words that express action or a certain state of being.

Just like the –s form, this one doesn’t need to be learned by heart as it never changes. The –ing form, used mostly as the continuous form of a verb, is created simply by adding –ing to the end of the root form of the verb, although there might be some slight nuances in spelling.
