Here I want to talk about infinitive phrases we're just infinitive and prepositional phrases okay especially the professor the prepositional phrase that has its its preposition the word to tio like I'm going to the store I went I she jumped to the left all right so we have a purpose a preposition to and it's always going to be connected with an object so it's going to be a prepositional phrase now that's pretty important you're not going to have a preposition unless you also have its object so prepositions don't exist outside of what's called a prepositional phrase which is just a collection of words that has the preposition and the prepositional object so to the mailbox okay so the man went to the mailbox so here would be the prepositional phrase okay and there's there's your preposition this is your object of the preposition now if in a quiz I asked you for say the one word that is the object in the prepositional phrase then it's going to be mailbox right because your object is the mailbox but if you're going to pick one of these two words pick pick the mailbox all right so anyway that's a that's a prepositional phrase to the mailbox but what about this I want to sing tonight we we we you know sleep to think better she takes her vitamins to get to stay healthy okay now what about this to sing do you think do you stay you have to why you have to be able to recognize something here these are not prepositional phrases these are what these are what are called infinity infinitive okay and see the thing about a verb I'm going to take I'm going to take this one right here and let's just put this worker here I sing tonight now this is this is present tense right this is how you would say it if you're doing it right now or I said let's go I think now I sing that's just do I say now what about I saying this is past tense what about I will sing this is future tense okay so you see how these verbs these other verbs they they will they will change they change forms sing saying and then the will shows up right in front of it if you're talking about future tent so this is how we know this is a verb but because it changes its form as you move the sentence through time this is called the finite verb so this is a finite verb this is a finite verb this is a finite its finite because it's limited or bound by tying boundaries and it's going to change it depends on the boundaries of the time that you put on it ok so these are not infinitives these are finite so I'm going to I'm going to go down here ago you know finite verse will undergo changes as they pass through time the time tense you know tenses tenses time intensive the same thing your past tense future tense present tense that sort of thing but now let's go let's go with you know I had one down here I want this thing tonight let's just let's go up here and go I want to sing I want to sink that present tense right now I wanted to sink this is past tense I will want to sink this is future so notice that this is the finite verb because it's changing but this does not change to you stays the same is the same stays the same but we just know right I mean this really looks like it's it's a verb thing that it speaks of an activity of herb activity but it's not changing as we move it through time so it's not really the verb this is what's called an infinite verb or we just call it the infinitive so this is your infinitive here and it's not a verb but it's also not a prepositional phrase so notice that prepositional phrases the man went to the mailbox um you know we look to the sky for help so what's another one the mouse let's see runs to the hole okay Oh answer so here is direction as to how the looking takes place here is direction as to where the the went you know activity though the action of moving in what direction this is direction alright so almost a lot of the times the prepositional phrase to the sky to the you know to the whole if the if the two is really part of a prepositional phrase it's going to give you direction it's going to give you information about direction of movement okay a lot of the times but you see that does not happen down here because this is really an infinitive and it's going to that too is going to be connected or come right before what you know is a verb but it's not really a verb in the sentence because it's not changing its form as you move the sentence through past present and future so you know we don't call this a verb in fact what we do is we call it a verbal and there are three types of verbals we'll talk about this later but one of the type of verbals is the infinitive and that's what this is and I don't want you to confuse this with a per am a prepositional phrase that begins with the position two that's not what this is
