I read the following clause:
We look forward to receiving your order...
Generally I thought that we never use infinitive+ing after to.
When do we use this grammar?
Engee 30 Hi,
first I would like to thank you for your reply.
Is the phrasal verbs have the same role as idioms ? and
how can I identify that it's phrasal vers and not simple verb with preposition, for example you wrote "I hope to hear from you"
as a person that not speak english daily I can think that" hope to" is also phrasal verb (verb + preposition).
please clarify this issue
- I look forward to something. <noun>
- I look forward to do something. <verb>
- I look forward to doing something. <noun: gerund>
- I hope to do something. <verb>
- I hope to something. <noun>
- I hope to doing something <noun:gerund>

Sorry but I didn't understand the examples , I will appreciate if you can give me more example for the" easiest way"
As for the link I opened it and it is very clear but just to be sure that I understand the list has phrasal verbs which mean that whenever I use to + verb after those phrasal verbs I must use present participle , am I correct ?
