I am a little confused about -ing endings on verbs. Eg. Cooking: I can say "I will be doing some cooking over the weekend", in which case it appears to be noun. I can say "I have been cooking", in which case it is part of a verb. Persent prefect progressive? Or I can say "I am using some new cooking techniques", in which case it appears to be adjective.What is it?
