I've seen dread being used with both to-inf and gerund. What's the difference between the two meaning when you give to inf and gerund at a time?
"dread" and "hate"
These two verbs are followed by a to-infinitive when talking hypothetically (usually when using to think), but by a gerund when talking about general dislikes.
˙I dread / hate to think what she will do.
˙I dread / hate seeing him.
