Verb forms used as other types of word


When a verb form such as a gerund is used as a noun, or an adjective or such as a past participle is used as an adjective like:


The dripping of the tap

The crying child

The newly promoted worker


is this conversion or just that the gerunds and participles have multiple roles?
