I have only just read your final reply ! Once again thank you very much for your input fluffyhamster but perhaps you misunderstood me.

Hello again ! :D

Once again thank you ever so much for taking the time to reply. You are right 'go' is an intransitive verb so swimming can't be the direct object and hence it is not the gerund.

Gerund

Hello everybody :)
I just wanted to confirm the following.

Thanks !
