Hi,

My question is if "related to" works in the place of "relating to" in the sentence.

What is the big difference between them?



They include strategies relating to the teaching of “...micro-level skills like verbal and non-verbal responses that influence the perception and response

Hi, Dude—Either "related to" or "relating to" may be used. In both "strategies relating to the teaching of certain skills" and "strategies related to the teaching of certain skills," the participial phrase is a reduced relative clause.

The present-participial clause ("relating to") gives active voice meaning (cf. "strategies that relate to the teaching of certain skills"). The past-participial clause gives passive-voice meaning ("strategies that are related to . . .).

Thanks, then are those always interchangeable like the example below?

Ironically, many social enterprises at the same time report of significant drawbacks related to each of these two forms of financing

= Ironically, many social enterprises at the same time report of significant drawbacks relating to each of these two forms of financing

A substantial need for capital
