Gerund and Present Participle
This dialect does not have specific forms for the gerund.
A limited number of verbs have a present participle formed by adding the suffix -ɛːnt. This form has various functions and meanings, different according to the specific verb and sometimes other than verbal (cf. Rossini 1985:81-83, 177ff). For this reason the relevant cells of the paradigms will be marked as having 'no form'.
