What are bare infinitives?
Bare infinitives are the verbs in the 1st column in the verb table, for examples, go, run,
walk, come, draw, write … etc.
What are to-infinitives?
To-infinitives are bare infinitives with “to” in front of it, for examples, to go, to run,
to walk, to come, to draw, to write … etc.
What are gerunds?
Gerunds are also called verbal nouns and they are used as nouns. You can find them in
the 2nd column in the verb table. You can make a gerund by putting “ing” after a bare
infinitive. For examples, the gerund for “draw” is “drawing”; the gerund for “run” is
“running”. Going, walking, coming, and writing are other examples
