I'm a novice who realised the existence of this site today. The following picture is from Idiomatic and Syntactic English Dictionary by A.S. Hornby:
Verbs marked P 10 may be followed by an object and an adverb or an adverb phrase (including adverbial infinitives meaning in order to....). See also the notes on the adverbial participles abive.
- They led | me | to believe that there was no danger.
I'm not sure whether the blue-coloured part, 'to believe that there was no danger', is an adverbial complement postmodifying 'led' according to the dictionary. If I had not seen the pattern 10, I would suppose the infinitive phrase is an adjectival complement postmodifying 'me'.
I know that the infinitive phrase is a complement which is obligatory, not a modifier. I also learnt the term 'a catenative complement'. But I'm not content with that term alone. I really want to know whether an infinitive complement is used as adjectival or adverbial or nominal. It's out of curiosity which is something I have been doing for my own understanding.
As you know, 'here' as in [Put it here] is an adverbial complement, not an adverbial modifier. I was told that 'you to go' as in [I want you to go] is a nominal complement clause (S+V+'O') and that 'to do it' as in [I asked you to do it] is also nominal (S+V+I,O+'D.O'). But, I'm not being sure of whether 'to believe that there was no danger' is also nominal or adjectival or adverbial which is an objective complement.
