Common English Verbs that Are Followed by Gerunds: Acknowledge

Here’s something new from Mark’s Text Terminal: a worksheet on using the verb acknowledge with a gerund. This material (these materials, rather, as I have over a hundred of these documents) arrives here after rolling around in my current work folder for about 15 years.

I started developing these during state testing in June one year, and chipped away at them each year as I waited around at work to take my turn proctoring tests. Their source is a small book I purchased on Amazon, Mastering Gerunds and Infinitives (Honolulu: Focus on English, 2008) by someone named Tom Celentano. On several occasions, I almost tossed this enterprise into the digital dumpster. But each time I opened the folder, I ended up working further with them. So, when I opened it last January, while quarantining for COVID (the second time), I opened the folder and finished these.

Anyway, for more on these, see their section in the About Posts and Texts page, where a fuller explanation of these, with supporting documents, is available.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
