The study is concerned with the issue of -ing forms in both the theoretical aspect (morpho-syntactic delimitation of the scalar range of -ing forms) and practical aspect (survey of their occurrence in a legal English corpus). The research concentrates on the syntactic analysis of -ing verbal nouns, gerunds and -ing participles, and is aimed to reveal the conditioning factors that influence the selection of a particular type of the nominalisations under analysis.
