Does the two sentences below have the same meaning?
I want to go and get it.
I want to go and to get it. (I put 'to' before 'get')
I guess the first one is usually what I have heard from native speakers' conversation. Is the second one possible as well though it is not used usually, or is it a wrong sentence?
Many thanks in advance!
Do the two sentences have the same meaning?
Yes, more or less.
The second is probably more correct grammatically, but less realistic to be heard from a native speaker.
Strictly speaking, when you have a conjunction you should match the items. So an infinitive should be matched with another infinitive.
But "go and get" is such a set phrase that it sounds very odd to say "to go and to get."
Thank you very much. I got it. ^^
