In grammatical analysis, a form of the verb. English has two forms. The present participle ends in -ing; for example, ‘working’ in ‘They are working’ (The verb's tense does not have to be present when the present participle is used, for example ‘they used to be working’). The past participle ends in -ed in regular verbs; for example, ‘trained’ in ‘They have been trained well’. In irregular verbs, the past participle has a special form, for example: drive/driven; light/lit; burn/burned/burnt.

Present Active Participle and Verbal Adjective
The Present Active Participle is used predicatively and remains unchanged, cf.:
  • Sentant l'adversaire faiblie, il en ont profité.
  • Feeling the adversary to become feeble, they have taken an advantage of this.
The Verbal Adjective (L'Adjectif Verbal) is used attributively and does agree in number and gender with the noun to which it refers, cf.:
  • C'était une nouvelle surprenante et très grave.
  • This was surprising and very bad news.
The Present Active Participle and the Verbal Adjective have usually one and the same form, but with a few exceptions; in this cases the Verbal Adjective ends in -ent or have a particular form (the verbs of -guer / -quer):
  Verb Present Active Participle Verbal Adjective
  adhérer to adhere adhérant adhérent, -e
  coïncider to coincide coïncidant coïncident, -e
  communiquer to communicate communiquant communicant, -e
  confluer to flow together confluant confluent, -e
  convaincre to convince convainquant convaincant, -e
  converger to converge convergeant convergent, -e
  déférer to defer déférant déférent, -e

The following forms are invariable:
  • soi-disant self-appealing;
  • battant neuf brandy new;
  • flambant neuf brandy new.
The perfect participle can be used instead of the present participle in sentences  like the one below (i.e. where one action is immediately followed by another with the same subject):

  • Tying one end of the rope to the wardrobe, Mike threw the other end out of thewindow  = Having tied one end of the rope to the wardrobe, Mike threw the other end out of the window.

The perfect participle emphasizes that the first action is complete before the second one starts, but is not normally necessary in combinations of this kind, except when the use of the present participle might lead to confusion.
  • Reading the instructions, he snatched up the fire extinguisher

The above sentence might give the impression that the two actions were simultaneous. Here, therefore, the perfect participle would be better:
  • Having read the instructions, he snatched up the fire extinguisher.

The perfect participle is, however, necessary when there is an interval of time between the two actions:
  • Having failed twice, he didn't want to try again.

It is also used when the first action covered a period of time:
  • Having been his own boss for such a long time, he found it hard to accept orders from another.
