    Re: To V or Ving

    Where did you hear this phrase? It's more commonly heard as 'leave no stone unturned'.

    Are you sure you copied it correctly?

    Also, please start a separate thread for your second question, since it's a new question.

    Note my corrections above. You must start every sentence with a capital letter. Follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Don't put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Don't put a space after opening quotation marks.

    Please ensure you use full words on the forum. "n" does not exist. It's "and". "u" does not exist. It's "you".

    As Skrej said, it's "leave no stone unturned".

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    With these verbs, it depends whether the memory comes before or after the action:

    I remember going there as a child. (= I went as a child and I am remembering that now. Action first, memory second.)
    I remembered to give her the key. (= I had the memory first and that prompted me to give her the key. Memory first, action second.)
