  • A participle is a form of a verb that is used in a sentence to modify a noun, noun phrase, verb or verb phrase, and thus plays a role similar to that of an adjective or adverb. It is one of the types of nonfinite verb forms.
  • Participles may correspond to the active voice (active participles), where the modified noun is taken to represent the agent of the action denoted by the verb; or to the passive voice (passive participles),
  • In some languages, participles can be used in the periphrastic formation of compound verb tenses, aspects or voices.
