...also, in this book, the following rule is given:
Attempt, intend, continue, can’t bear, be accustomed to, be committed to
After these words and expressions we can generally use either an -ing form
or an infinitive without much difference of meaning.
I intend telling/ to tell her what I think.
I’m not accustomed to giving/give personal information about myself to strangers.
Everyone agrees with the above-mentioned rule except for “be committed to do”. Even,
observing your reply to one of the questions concerning “be accustomed to doing/do”
in this forum, I learnt that “be accustomed to do” is slightly old-fashioned equivalent of
“be accustomed to doing”.
But, as to “ be committed to do”….
What is your opinion on this problem?
Could You please clarify this one?
I always appreciate your comments.
