I'd like to ask you a question. In my English grammar book is stated that after the verb ADVISE follows gerund or object and infinitive. But another book states that the verb ADVISE can be followed only by TO+Infinitive of verb.
Which possibility is correct?
After the verb advise there are two possible structures:
- Gerund: verb + -ing:
They advise walking to town.
- Infinitive: verb + + to-infinitive:
They advise to walk to town.
Other verbs which follow this pattern are below:
|allow||They do not allow smoking here. |
They do not allow to smoke here.
|encourage||They encourage doing the test. |
They encourage to do the test.
|permit||They do not permit smoking here.|
They do not permit to smoke here.
Hope this helps
