To identify the gerund or gerund phrase we must first understand what a gerund is.

An action word/verb that ends with -ing but has a role of a noun in the sentence is a gerund. Since gerunds function as a noun, they can either be the subject of the sentence or an object of a preposition/verb.

The gerund, including any other modifiers, makes the gerund phrase.
