I have a feeling there have been some posts earlier dealing with the infinitive versus gerund -- why not just search by the tag? english.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/infinitive-vs-gerund

comment concede word usage
Apart from meaning, we need to familiarize ourselves with the usage of a word and its various derivations to correctly form sentences. Please refer to example sentences from GoogleBooks. Good Luck.

comment concede word usage
Please refer to a good dictionary for various derived word forms (POS) related to concede. We may not always "make up" other POSs in an arithmetical way in the English language. (I suppose the OP is a non-native speaker of English.) Generally it is only v.i. or v.t. with conceder as a rare noun and conceding the gerund form. Concessible is literary. Concession is only etymologically related. Conceded and concededly are understably permissible derivations, though. HTH.
