I'm having a bit of trouble using different 'rather than' structures.
Can anyone verify whether the examples below are correct?
"She'd rather move out than pay the rent"
"I prefer taking action rather than doing nothing"
"Rather than giving up his freedom he would flee from his country"
(It is mainly the last senctence that seems a bit dubious to me)
Also, I wondered whether it is possible to have a to-infinitive in a
'rather than' structure (and if so, could you give me an example of that), or that only bare infinitives and ing-forms are acceptable in such structures. What are the rules on this?
