Many if not all sources state that to endure is followed by a gerund.
In OALD, however, there's an example for both:
endure doing something He can't endure being defeated.
endure to do something He can't endure to be defeated.
I search the Internet but didn't find any other reliable sources that second this.
I checked COCA and found out the use of infinitive has indeed less frequency, but actually the results for both are so little (47:25) that I wouldn't say that this gives any conclusion.
Anyhow, my question is if there's a subtle difference between using gerund or infinitive?
And can anyone explain why all sources (that discuss gerund vs infinitive) state that endure is followed by a gerund, although infinitive is possible as well?
