4. Mention three classes of verbs that can take both an INFINITIVE and a GERUND as their
complement. Discuss the differences between the two structures for each class of verbs and give
examples to illustrate them.
Here are three examples. Try to work out the difference between the versions in each case, and post your answers; then we'll check them for you:
1a. I like to eat cheese.
1b. I like eating cheese.
2a. I started to walk across the field.
2b. I started walking across the field.
3a. I tried changing the washer, but the tap still dripped.
3b. I tried to change the washer, but couldn't undo the nut.
All the best,
