- To help others is important.
In this sentence, 'To help' is the infinitive (being used as noun subject) and 'is' is the verb. What is the object ? 'Others' ? And is 'To help others' an infinitive phrase ? Since 'others' is explaining 'To help who ?'.
- I really need to eat something.
In this sentence, 'I' is the noun subject, 'really'is an adverb describing the verb 'need' and 'to eat'is the adverb describing the verb ? Or is it the noun object ? I am confused here.
- Joel wants a book to read.
'Joel' is the subject. 'Wants'is the verb. 'A book'is the object and 'to read' is the adjective describing 'book' ?
https://englishsentences.com/infinitive/ states 'book'as the subject. Am I missing something here ?
Joel wants a book to read.
- In this sentence, the verb is “wants” and the subject is the noun “book.”
- We also see the infinitive “to read.” What is the purpose of “to read” in this sentence?
- It describes the book; Joel isn’t looking for just any book, he’s looking for a book to read.
- In this sentence, the infinitive functions as an adjective
I would like to know if got all the parts of the sentences correct.
Thanks in advance.
