The Infinitive Form

Нравится Şərh yazmaq

The INFINITIVE form of a verb is the form which follows to:

to ask
to believe
to cry
to go
to protect
to sing
to talk
to wish

This form is indistinguishable from the base form. Indeed, many people cite this form when they identify a verb, as in «This is the verb to be«, although to is not part of the verb.

Infinitives with to are referred to specifically as TO-INFINITIVES, in order to distinguish them from BARE INFINITIVES, in which to is absent:

To-infinitive Bare infinitive
Help me to open the gate Help me open the gate
