Verb + verb (neglect)

Post by Rustamsher » Sat Oct 21, 2017 9:18 am

1) He neglected to inform them of his arrival.
2) Sometimes she neglects doing her homework.
3) The man neglected to give me all the information.
4) He neglected doing his daily chores.

Dear Alan,I have gathered the above sentences from different sources.

However, I am not sure of this correctness. Which grammatical structure is correct?

Thank you.

'Neglect TO DO' is standard.
