VERB + INFINITIVE/GERUND WITH CHANGE IN MEANING
Dialog: "Don't stop pushing."
There are several verbs that can be followed by either a verb in the gerund or in the infinitive form. However, the meaning changes depending on which is used. Here are some common verbs that follow this pattern: to go on, to remember, to stop and to try.
We use to go on to do something when we do or say something new. We use to go doing something when we continue doing or saying the same thing.
1)TO GO ON
We use to remember to do something before we do it. We use to remember doing something after we have done it.
2) TO REMEMBER
We use to stop to do something when we conclude an action to do something else. We use to stop doing something when we conclude an action we are engaged in at that moment.
3) TO STOP
We use to try to do something when we attempt to do something, make an effort to do it. We use to try doing something when we experiment or test something.
4) TO TRY
