What would be the correct structure for "would rather...than..." in past aspect?
1.) would rather have v3 than v3
ex. He would rather have gone out than stayed.
2.) would rather have v3 than vinf
ex. He would rather have gone out than stay.
I have tried to find some references but none exactly match the case.
For example, from the Cambridge website:
When we want to refer to the past we use would rather + have + -ed form (perfect infinitive without to):
She would rather have spent the money on a holiday. (The money wasn’t spent on a holiday.)
I’d rather have seen it at the cinema than on DVD. (I saw the film on DVD.)
