• I go sing karaoke at bars.

  • An engineer goes camping.

The verbs go and sing and go and camp with -ing have been used consecutively in the above two sentences respectively. Are they grammatically correct and if they are then what do they mean?


1 Answer 1


Your second sentence is correct. Let me give you a few more examples using the same structure of sentence construction :

  1. "They go skiing every winter."

  2. "Come dance with me."

  3. "Go fetch the newspaper."

  4. "He got carried away and bought 15 books."

There are many more examples that are grammatically correct. So yes, you can use two verbs consecutively. But this isn't the case for all the verbs. You can't use all the verbs in this fashion.
