engee30, they are beautiful examples.

Love and Miss Scotland so much
In the examples given by engee30, it seems to me that the use of "towards" gives us the meaning of "towards an aim/something", whereas the use of "to" is "in order to do something".
In applying your advice to the following sentences i read from a newspaper this morning:
"Wen denied the swindling charges but pleaded guilty to entering the mainland illegally by using a Hong Kong home return permit under the name Wen Ruiping." (if "towards" something, it makes sense, whereas "in order to", it doesn't. )
"And when Hong Kong people did declaim - against planned security legislation or in favour of democracy - the response from our administration, again with strong prompts from Beijing, was to give priority to getting the economy moving ahead, in the hope that people would then forget their gripes." ("towards" something rather than "in order to" seems more logical.)
Am I right?
Thanks to all.
BTW, Casiopea, could you tell me what the "verb's subcategorization frame" means?

As for the phrase enough room to(wards) establishing, it works, it's possible, but given the context, its not the best choice.
We all seem to agree to establish is the phrase that works best in that particular context.
The good, the bad, and the ugly about Google Search is that it reflects language in use.
Sorry, engee30. I didn't see you there.
I gather you haven't yet seen the post of yours that I deleted portions of by mistake.
