    Gerund İnfinitive

    Hi!
    İ want to ask a question about a gerund-infinitive.

    i have been trying to understand the subject for 2 days.
    Can you tell the difference between?

    How do I know if a word is Gerund or Infinitive?

    Re: Gerund İnfinitive

    Right. Here they are:

    infinitive
    noun
    the basic form of a verb, without an inflection binding it to a particular subject or tense (normally occurring in English with the word to, as in to see, to ask).

    gerund
    nounGrammar - a verb form which functions as a noun, in English ending in -ing (e.g. asking in do you mind my asking you?).

    (COED)
