Thread: Not / ING

  1. #1

    Talking Not / ING


    1. In the sentence: Nice talking to you. / It was nice talking to you, is it possible to use "to" instead of īng"? (why, Why not)

    2. "I prefer not to talk. / It's better you don't come. "Can I explain that I use "not" when I don't have subject (I, you, he...)? And when I use "not"I should always use "to, right???

    3. "Me neither"could be used for all the negative sentences, OK???

    Re: Not / ING

    1- I wouldn't. I'd use the infinitve for a future talk- it would be nice to talk to them.
    2- You can use not + gerund too.
    3- I wouldn't do it in formal language.
