I have a question.
When we speak English, do we only use "want" with "to"?
I mean, is "want" always use with "to"?
Can we use only "want"?
If we can use only "want", what is the different between "want" and "want to"?
I am very confused by this word. (I found this word here! What a beautiful site!)
And if you find incorrect grammar, fix it, please.
Thank you very much.
"Want" uses "to" before verbs. It does not use "to" before nouns.
A verb with the word "to" in front of it is called an infinitive: to go, to eat, to scratch, to do, to be.
When you put the word "want" in front of the "to," it means that what you want is an activity, an action: you want to go, you want to eat, you want to scratch, you want to do, you want to be.
If you want a thing or a condition (a noun), there is no "to": you want money, you want love, you want fun, you want an apple, you want ice cream, you want music, you want water, you want happiness.
