    Exclamation gerund or infinitive can be used?

    for example:

    infinitive: She plans to watch TV.

    but can i change into gerund? like.. "she plans watching TV"?

    Do gerunds only have their special own words?how can i get the list?please explain it in details..thank you.

    A gerund is simply the "ing" form of a verb used as a noun.

    Try:
    She plans to keep watching TV.
