What is grammatically wrong with the sentence, "I feel to eat."? After the verb feel, can the infinitive of another verb be used?

  • I would recommend to use "feel like to do" instead of "feel to do". – Dapeng Gao Mar 2 '14 at 4:56

Infinitives are not usually used after the verb to feel. To express desire, the usual construction is I feel like + gerund, which is to say I feel like eating.

If, however, you prefer to use an infinitive, then change the finite verb: e.g. I want to eat, I wish to eat, I hope to eat are all correct, but never *I feel to eat.
