Could you give me an example where infinitives Infinitives can function as adverbs, adjectives, or nouns?
Sorry, Sanjay, I really do create most of my own material for my kids, so I don't have much to reference you toward...
For example, here is something that I created for my kids to practice their Parts of Speech on:
As you can see, I put 69 items in the item bank, testing 15 at a time... once you are done with a test, check your answers and then regenerate it to get some new AND old terms until you master all the parts of speech in there.
I have found those 69 examples to set a good foundation for my kids.
In re: Infinitives
Here is a good powerpoint presentation on all three types of infinitives:
But, like I said, I enjoy making my own examples, so...
I want to see you. (Infinitive Phrase acting as direct object [noun]).
He was slow to respond. (Infintive modifying "slow", an adjective, making "to respond" an adverb)
I am the man to know if you need help. (Infinitive modifying "man", a noun, making "to know" an adjective)
