Abstract: The paper deals with a verbal construction 'root + -kar' called 'conjunctive participle' in Hindi/Urdu. The main objective of the paper is not to present a full syntactic or semantic account of this construction, but rather to compare it with the Italian gerund. Although the Hindi 'conjunctive participle' is thought to be similar to the Italian gerund, it is not always possible to translate the Hindi 'conjunctive participle' using it. Furthermore, whereas in Italian the gerund can be used both at predicate level or at the level of phrase, in Hindi it is almost always used at the level of predicate. This paper is an attempt to establish similarities as well as differences between these constrictions in two languages.
