    Verb + -ing or to. (1)


    Verb + -ing or to... (1)

     

    When one verb follows another verb, the structure is usually verb + -ing or verb + to...

    Compare:


    Verb + -ing

    • They denied stealing the money.

    • I enjoy going out.

    Often we use -ing for an action that happens before the first verb or at the same time:

    stealing <— denied

                     

    Verb + to...

    • They decided to steal the money.

    • I want to go out.

    Often we use to... for an action that follows the first verb

    decided -> to steal

    want —>to go


    Some verbs can be followed by -ing or to... with a difference of meaning:

     

    Remember


    I remember doing something = I did it and now I remember this.

    You remember doing something after you have done it:

    • I’m absolutely sure I locked the door. I clearly remember locking it. (=I locked it, and now I remember this)

    • He could remember driving along the road just before the accident happened, but he couldn't remember the accident itself.


    I remembered to do something = I remembered that I had to do it, and so I did it.

    You remember to do something before you do it:

    • I remembered to lock the door when I left but I forgot to shut the windows.

    (= I remembered that I had to lock the door and so I locked it)

    • Please remember to post the letter.

    (= don't forget to post it)


    Regret


    I regret doing something = I did it and now I'm sorry about it:

    • I now regret saying what I said. I shouldn’t have said it.


    I regret to say / to tell you / to inform you

    = I'm sorry that I have to say (etc.):

    • (from a formal letter) We regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you the job.


    Go on



    Go on doing something = continue doing the same thing:

    • The minister went on talking for two hours.

    • We must change our ways. We can't go on living like this.


    Go on to do something = do or say something new:

    • After discussing the economy, the minister then went on to talk about foreign policy.


    Begin/ start/ intend/ continue/ bother

    These verbs can be followed by -ing or to... with little or no difference in meaning. So you can say:

    • It has started raining, or It has started to rain.

    • John intends buying a house, or John intends to buy...

    • Don’t bother locking the door, or Don't bother to lock...

    But normally we do not use –ing after-ing:

    • It’s starting to rain. (Not it’s starting raining)


    Put the verb into the correct form, -ing or to:
