Hi aysha, and welcome to the forum.

Participle clauses can begin with a present participle (doing), a past participle (done), or a perfect participle (having done).

Have you already tried to learn all three of those?
.

hi yanki

thanks for replying so quick
yes i have learned those today.
i just don’t know how to make a sentence using a pariciple clause …!
can you teach me how to do that with some examples.
alsom can you write 10 sentences for me to transfer it to relative clauses…

extra opinions are welcomed

Hi aysha

Are you currently learning how to transform sentences such as the following?

  • The dirt road that leads to the barn is full of debris.
    (The dirt road leading to the barn is full of debris.)

  • A man who was wearing a Donald Duck mask robbed the bank yesterday.
    (A man wearing a Donald Duck mask robbed the bank yesterday.)
    .

yup,
i am tring to teach myself that
i just want some one to help me.
to give me sentences that i will transform, then he or she can correct those sentences to me.
i want to know when do i use the past participle clause or the perfect or the present ?

we use -ing clauses to say what somebody (or something ) is (or was) doing particular time :
ex:

  • Do you know the woman talking to sam (the woman is talking to Sam)
  • i was woken up by a bell ring ( a bell was ringing )

-ed clauses have a passive meaning
the boy injured in accident was taken to hospital

one more thing I need to add is present participle clause does not reflect the tense, it modifies the meaning.
For ex :
A man who was wearing a Donald Duck mask robbed the bank yesterday.
A man who worn a Donald Duck mask robbed the bank yesterday.

the 2 sentences can be transfer to present participle clause, and you cannot figure it out the original sentence is continuous or simple tense.
A man wearing a Donald Duck mask robbed the bank yesterday.
