Hi Good morning to all,
They are my long-haunting questions. I hope today someone could answer them to reliese me from my puzzle.
Everyone knows that To-infinitive can be used as a noun.
So is it all right to put a possessive adjective in front of it? just like:
1. When Hillary tried to climb Everest, the goal was his to achieve.
It seems a bit strange to me, because it does not appear very often in many English textbooks. Is this pattern(a possessive adjective + a to-infinitive as object)
valid in terms of Grammar?
Have you seen them before in any articles?
It's fine- the goal was his.
