I have three questions to ask:
They came into the inn and asked for accommodation to be provided for them.
My question is: Is there such a structure as "to ask for something to be done"? I haven't learned the structure.
You can use two stuctures: i) Ask for something to be done.
ii) Ask to get something done
I can say "Please tell me about it". The negative should be "Please do not tell me about it". Then I can say "Would not you please tell me about it?". Is that right?
No, "not" should be placed after the helping/modal verb. So 'do' should be put before 'not' in the first sentence and 'not' after 'would' in the second sentence.
I'd like to make sure that I use "dare" correctly. Do please decide if the following is correct or not.
a. They do not dare to move.
b. They do not dare move. 'dare' is a verb, so the second verb 'move' should be either in infinitive or gerund form.
c. They dare to move.
d. They dare move. Same reason as explained at 'b'
e. They dared not to move.
f. They dared not move.Same reason as explained at 'b'
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
