English Grammar


I have always a problem with names which ended by -ing. For example paint and painting. I wonder what is the différence between both.
I think paint is the think we need to paint and what about painting ?
Do I have to say paint sypplies or painting supplies ?

Thanks for your help


  • Hello, I red your little question. I'm like you, grammar is also my problem. I think paint is the name as well as a painting, to paint is the verb, but you hate painting you enjoy watching the tv. Good luck, Christa
