  • The present participle does occur in such contexts, but it's not common, and I would say it's dialectal and/or uneducated. – FumbleFingers Aug 3 '13 at 3:17
  • "Looking to build something" but "looking into building something", and the meaning of "looking" has changed too. It's a miracle that some people actually learn this language. – Andreas Blass Aug 3 '13 at 3:24
