This question already has an answer here:
- Order of “not” with infinitive 9 answers
A little bit of context, I read the sentence below after the system - a computer application - has been subject to a certain kind of update:
The system will be able to not create a record of that movement anymore.
I think they are trying to stress the new behavior of the system compared to the previous one, hence that sentence construction.
Firstly, would it sound better if we changed the sentence for something like this where we get rid of the split infinite:
The system will be able not to create a record of that movement anymore.
At least for me that sentence construction seems a little bit odd and something an English native speaker would not say, do you agree with me or is it perfectly acceptable?
