Make vs. Making: What's the Difference?

Edited by Huma Saeed || By Sawaira Riaz || Updated on September 28, 2023
"Make" is a verb referring to the act of creating or producing, while "Making" is the gerund form, denoting the process or action of creating or producing.

Key Differences

"Make" is a versatile verb in English, often used to refer to the action of creating, forming, or producing something. It can refer to constructing, preparing, or forcing something into a certain condition. It is used in various contexts to denote different kinds of creation or transformation, such as to make a cake or to make a promise. In contrast, "Making" serves to represent the action or process of being made. It is the gerund or present participle form of "Make," illustrating ongoing action or describing the act of creation, like in "making a decision."

"Make" can be employed in a plethora of contexts and with various meanings, depending on the surrounding words and the overall context of the sentence. For instance, you can make a choice, make a friend, or make an adjustment. Each use of "Make" in these contexts implies a different kind of action or creation. On the other hand, "Making" can be used as a noun to represent the process of making something. For instance, in phrases like "in the making," it conveys the sense of a thing being in the process of being created or developed.

In terms of grammatical role, "Make" is a base form, used in various tenses, and it can be conjugated according to subject and tense, like makes or made. It’s straightforward and carries an action-oriented connotation. "Making," being a gerund, can act as a noun within a sentence, referring to the action or process of making. It signifies an ongoing or incomplete action of creating or producing something and can be particularly useful in expressing progressive tenses.

To comprehend the difference fully, consider the following examples: "I will make a cake," and "I am making a cake." In the first sentence, "Make" is in the future tense, indicating an intention to perform the action of making a cake. In the second sentence, "Making" is used to express an action that is currently ongoing, indicating the speaker is in the process of making a cake at the moment of speaking. The distinction between "Make" and "Making" thus primarily revolves around their grammatical roles and the temporal aspects of the actions they describe.
