Using Infinitives as Nouns and Adjectives
April 15, 1999
We know that infinitives follow verbs. For example, "I want to
study English" Infinitives are useful in other ways as well. They can be used as
nouns and adjectives, too.
Examples of infinitives as nouns and adjectives
|To study English is very difficult for me. (noun)|
|To learn is a good thing at any age. (noun)|
|I have too much work to do. (adjective for noun, "work")|
|Whe have five questions to answer. (adjective for noun, "questions").|
Write a short paragraph (or some sentences) about study. Use infinitives in the same
way as the examples. Write a topic sentence, indent five spaces, and please double space
your writing. Teacher Writing Sample
To learn takes time and effort, but the results are worth it!
