comment When should a verb be followed by a gerund instead of an infinitive?
And how does “He is good at teachING” help anyone determine how to say “He can’t stop teaching”, “I hired him to teach me”, “I had him teach me”, etc.? This question is about a conjugated verb followed by another verb form, and how to determine the form of the second verb based on which verb precedes it.

comment Is there a name for a pair of words or phrase that can have a double meaning?
"Fine for swimming". (1) This waterway is a great place to take a dip. (2) Swimming is prohibited here, and is punishable by a financial penalty. (Hmm. Is it just coincidence that "fine" and "finance" has the same first three letters?)
