V in n

Structure information: Verbs in phase

The verb is followed by the preposition in and the '-ing' form of another verb. The verbs are in phase, and together form a complex verb group. This means that the actions or states expressed by the two verbs cannot be separated from each other. For example, if you succeed in obtaining something, the succeeding and the obtaining are not two processes, but one.The complex verb group is followed by a group, phrase, or clause which completes the pattern of the second verb. In the structure table above, this is called a Completive. For example, if the second verb is normally followed by a noun group, then the Completive of the complex verb group will be a noun group. This structure has no passive.
