- In Lombard there is no present participle (however it was introduced as Italianism in some dialects) but just its periphrases.
- paying = che 'l paga. (“that pays” that it the periphrasis that plays the role of the present participle that would be instead “pagant”)
- The past participle, on the other hand, exists and is widely used (especially to form compound tenses, but also as an adjective).
