I know that all cluases(dependent) should start with words like:
how,what,that,when,...+ subject + verb
but what kind of cluases we call this one: "How to say","what to do"???
according to longman dictionary this examples below used to introduce a cluase with what:
ex:They are discussing what to do next.

  • I'd say how / what / where / etc. are effectively adverbs after something like I don't know... But I don't think it makes any difference to the "syntactic classification" whether we follow the wh- word by an infinitive or a finite verb form (I don't know where to go, I don't know where he went, I don't know what happened). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica May 27 '19 at 15:20
