Some Observations on Verb + "ing" and Verb + Infinitive.
Tregidgo, P. S.
English Language Teaching Journal, v35 n1 p45-48 Oct 1980
Certain verbs in English can be followed by both "ing" and by a "to"+ infinitive, with a difference in meaning. The "ing" ending is used for events or states already in existence at the time of the preceding verb. The infinitive points ahead to a later time. Examples are given. (PJM)
