comment Easy way to explain “meet” versus “to meet” versus “meeting” versus “to meeting”
I believe it's a matter of verb government which should be memorized with each new verb. "stop" requires +ing, "start" can take both to-infinitiva and verb+ing. I don't think there's an easy rule for this.

comment Is there a relation between the words “import” (trade) and “important” (valuable)?
Important means of import. But I suppose you're asking about import as an antonym of export. I'd make it clear in your question if I were you.

Uou mention duo and trio. Why don't you also mention quartet, quintet, etc? Are there contexts where trio is acceptable while quartet is not?
