Could you tell me an infinitive is? Could you also give me some sample sentences with it.
Thanks a lot!!!
Thank you very much! You did help me, thanks!!!
I really don't know much of the terms used in English.
How about the other forms of the verb, do we have a name for that, too?
The verb has four forms:1.The infinitive 2. The past Indefinite 3.The Past Participle 4. the Present Participle.
Let's take the verb "go"
1.to go 2. went 3. gone 4. going
The first form helps to form The Present Simple and The Future Simple Tenses. e.g. I go to work every morning. I will go to work soon.
The secong form helps to form only The Past Simple Tense. e.g. I went to work last work.
The third form helps to form perfect tenses and the passive voice. e.g. He has just gone to work. They had gone to work when I phoned them.
The fourth form helps to form continuous tenses. e.g. I'm going to work now. You were going to work when I saw you. I will be going to work at 9 oc'lock a.m. tomorrow.
I think you know English better now. Cheers!
