    Noticed something

    I think I noticed the to behind infinitive verb can be replaced by a subject pronoun. I don't know if I'm right so you can tell me if you think I'm wrong.

    Re: Noticed something

    Like "how to do this" can also be written "how I do this".

    Re: Noticed something

    "How to do this" is different from "how I do this".

    Look at my amendments above. Please mark out the words you are querying in some way. I have done it by putting quotation marks round them. You could put them in bold or in italics instead but it's important to differentiate them from the rest of the words in some way.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
