What are Infinitives?
The infinitive is the base or most simplistic form of the verb. This means that t completely lacks a form inflection or tie to a specific subject. They often lack the presence of a tense which makes them often appear to be in the present tense. They are relatively easy to spot because they are often stated in to + the verb form. Once spotted they are not all that easy to understand the nature of the relationship to the other words in the sentence. In the most common usage infinitive verbs serve as the direct object and the modifier serves as the adverb. In this series of worksheets and lessons we will learn how to identify infinitives within pre-written sentences and work on using them in our own writing.
