Abstract. The article is devoted to the division of impersonal forms of the English verb having the same morphological marker -ing, but different cognitive-pragmatic component related to the degree of nominalization, contained in their semantics. The analysis shows that a verbal noun and a gerund take the top positions in this scale, and participles, which act as a condenser providing the compression of deep subordinate clause or as part of the analytical form of a verb, – the lower ones.
Key words and phrases: герундий, аспектуальность, темпоральность, номинализация, предикация, модификация, конденсер, сжатие информации, gerund, aspectuality, temporality, nominalization, predication, modification, condenser, data compression.
