Verbes + -ing ou to - cours


Verb + -ing or to.(2)


Try to... and try -ing


Try to do = attempt to do, make an effort to do:

   I was very tired. I tried to keep my eyes open but I couldn't.

• Please try to be quiet when you come home. Everyone will be asleep.

 

Try also means 'do something as an experiment or test'. For example:

• These cakes are delicious. You must try one. (= you must have one to see if you like it)

• We couldn't find anywhere to stay. We tried every hotel in the town but they were all full. (= we went to every hotel to see if they had a room)

 

If try (with this meaning) is followed by a verb, we say try -ing:

• A: The photocopier doesn't seem to be working.

B: Try pressing the green button. (= press the green button - perhaps this will help to solve the problem)

Compare:

• I tried to move the table but it was too heavy, (so I couldn't move it)

• I didn't like the way the furniture was arranged, so I tried moving the table to the other side of the room. But it still didn't look right, so I moved it back again.

 

Need to... and need -ing


I need to do something = it is necessary for me to do it:

• I need to take more exercise.

• He needs to work harder if he wants to make progress.

• I don't need to come to the meeting, do I?

 

Something needs doing = something needs to be done:

• The batteries in the radio need changing. (= they need to be changed)

• Do you think my jacket needs cleaning? (=needs to be cleaned)

• It's a difficult problem. It needs thinking about very carefully. (= it needs to be thought about)

 

Help and can't help

 

You can say 'help to do' or 'help do' (infinitive with or without to):

• Everybody helped to clean up after the party, or Everybody helped clean up...

• Can you help me to move this table? or Can you help me move...

 

There is also an expression 'can't/couldn't help doing something'.

'I can't help doing something' = I can't stop myself from doing it:

• I don't like him but he has a lot of problems. I can't help feeling sorry for him.

• She tried to be serious but she couldn't help laughing. (= she couldn't stop herself from laughing)

• I'm sorry I'm so nervous. I can't help it. (= I can't help being nervous)

 


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