Gerund of verb?
Sentence: Lately, my friend and I have been shopping a lot.
In the above sentence I see that "have" and "been" are verbs, but does the complete main verb also include "shopping"?
Is shopping an activity in this case, so a noun (gerund), or is the action being helped by the helping verbs "have" and "been"
