Wish to do something
- Despite her wish to continue working, she was forced to retire at the age of 62.
I see the entry ''wish to do something'' in the Longman Dictionary, but I would like to ask if we can use 'wish for doing someting' instead of 'wish to do' or not. For example:
- Despite his wish for continuing to study hard, he could not understand the logic behind that course.
- Despite her wish for continuing working, she was forced to retire at the age of 62.
Generally, we use "wish for + noun".
He wished for money.
She wished for the winning lottery ticket.
