Feeling = verb?

Posted by Holger:

The word “feelings” ends in “ing”, so it is a verb?

Actually, “feelings” is a noun, not a verb. It’s a plural noun formed from the singular noun “feeling.” The confusion might arise because the -ing suffix is commonly used to form present participles of verbs (e.g., “running,” “eating,” “sleeping”), but in this case, it’s forming a noun.

“Feeling” can be a verb when it’s used to describe the act of experiencing an emotion or sensation. For example, “I am feeling happy” or “She feels tired.”

However, when we add the -s suffix to “feeling,” it becomes a noun indicating the various emotions or sensations someone experiences. For instance, “His feelings were hurt” or “She has mixed feelings about the decision.”

So, while the -ing suffix often denotes a verb, in “feelings,” it’s part of a noun.
