Can anyone explain to me what you call this type of sentence form in English? Other examples: she likes skiing - I like reading - I love cycling - We hate driving ... It's not a Present Continuous as PC is with the verb 'to be' and the -ing form. Thanks for your help.
It's a simple SVO (subject-verb-object) sentence, just the object is the gerund. The gerund is a form of the verb that acts as a noun representing the activity the verb relates to, and as the same form as the progressive participle.
