    Here 'fishing', 'swimming', 'hunting', 'checking' are gerundial infinitives? Can I write these sentences using simple infinitives like 1. Go to fish. 2. Go to swim. 3. Go to hunt. 4. He came here to check the room? Please sir [some of the people likely to answer are female members] explain these grammatically. Thank you.
