I have an advanced student who said that she feels that something I wrote needs a ‘to’ immediately before the word ‘do’. I told her that I don’t know a grammar based explanation, but that I’d find one.
This is the sentence:
This is an indirect way of suggesting that someone not do that.
She feels it ought to say 'not to do that'.
I read the answers to '“Why not do it” vs “why not to do it”'. But it seems to me mine isn't answered in this thread.
