Rebus lives in Edinburgh and he 's a brilliant detective, but he 's always getting into trouble. In one book, he gets suspended and they tell him to stop working on this case. But he takes no notice …. Hello sir, Today I had been to a college programme and I saw a board their which read ' orientation programme for welcoming first year students" I would like to know if we can use 'welcoming' as a verb like this.
I have seen dictionary entry for welcoming in canbridge dictionary and it says it is adjective. Will you help me clear the doubt? I understand this sign to be an abbreviated form of 'Orientation programme for the purpose of welcoming first year students'. In this case, 'welcoming' is an -ing form used as a noun also known as a gerund. Thank you Kirk for the reply.
I would also like to know if we can use welcoming as a verb also? If used appropriately as a form of the verb 'welcome', 'welcoming' -- for example, with 'have' to make the present perfect or 'be' to make the present continuous -- can certainly be correct. Hi I have a question.

A second good resource of this kind is the edited collection Le Poidevin and MacBeath Again, some background knowledge of the issues will be useful, but with this in hand the collection offers a very good broad set of papers, and it includes the most central and influential papers, historically, on the topic.
Grammar & Language
Copeland, B. Edited by Edward N. Le Poidevin, Robin. Oxford: Oxford University Press, A very clear, introductory book that covers a wide range of topics within the metaphysics of time, and is particularly useful for those interested in some of the issues arising from a consideration of the physics of our world. The Philosophy of Time.
This anthology is perhaps not best described as an introductory work, as the papers in it are not targeted at those new to this area of study. But, the papers are seminal works in the philosophy of time, including papers by McTaggart, Mellor, and Prior, so this is an excellent resource for those wanting to read the key papers on this topic.
Papers on Time and Tense (First Edition)
Lowe, Ernest Jonathan. A Survey of Metaphysics. Part 5 of this introductory text not only contains a nice exposition of issues surrounding tense, but also considers the philosophy of time more generally. It offers an excellent source of background reading to this area. Markosian, Ned. This is a useful introduction to the vast literature on time; it brings together disparate issues, including discussion of different views about the ontology of our world, the nature of temporal flow, the nature of persistence, and the nature of tense.
The Primacy of Tense: A.N. Prior Now and Then
Smith, Quintin, and L. Nathan Oaklander. London and New York: Routledge, This book covers many more areas than just the metaphysics of time. Written in dialogue format, it is an entertaining and very easy read, and there are at least five dialogues 1—3, 6, and 9 that focus on both the nature of time and the nature of tense.
