Interested in Language
Hi. Yesterday when I was doing some English exercises, I got this sentence in Recording 1a (Cambridge English Vocabulary for IELTS):
... BUT NOWADAYS ALL WE SEEM TO DO IS ARGUE...
I don't understand why the verb ARGUE is used after IS. Could you possibly make it clear to me? Thank you so much, in advance

"Argue" is a bare infinitive in that sentence. In English, it's quite standard to use the infinitive (bare or full) after "do" + "be".
All we seem to do is argue.
