  • On a recent program, we talked about verbs that change meaning when we follow them with the Jarrah and or infinitive as a reminder.

  • A Jared is a verb form that ends in I N G and acts as a noun.

  • An infinitive is the shortest for form and usually has the word to in front of it.

  • Today, let's look at the verb forget, which can be followed by a gerund or an infinitive.

  • When you forget to do something, it means you wanted to do it, but you did not remember, so you did not do it.

  • Say, for example, you wanted to set your alarm clock last night.

  • But you didn't do it because you forgot you might say this.

  • I forgot to set my alarm last night.

  • Oh, no.

  • I hope you won't be late for work, school or an important meeting.

  • Yet.

  • When you forget doing something, the meaning changes.

  • It means you did do it.

  • But you failed to remember the act of doing it.

  • In other words, you forgot a memory.

  • Listen to this speaker.

  • He's a Jarron with Forget, Ben Forgot meeting Savannah's aunt at the family dinner The speaker is saying that then did meet Savannah's aunt, but he doesn't remember the act of meeting her.

  • More commonly, though, when Jared's follow Forget it's to declare that we will not forget a treasured memory, as in this example, I will never forget seeing my child walk for the first time.

  • I was so happy.

  • And I hope you won't forget watching this video about verbs that change with Garon's and infinitives that's everyday grammar.
