English- Infinitive phrases
posted by Erica on .
For this question, the directions say to name the TWO infinitive phrases in this sentence...
His wish to succeed as an architect made him work hard.
I know that "to succeed as an architect" would be one infinitive phrase, but there isn't another "to" ? So how would I figure out what the other infinitive is?
That website is very helpful! Thank you :)
So, because there is no "to" would the infinitive phrase include the verb too? : "made him work hard"
You're right about the first infinitive phrase.
The main verb of the sentence is "made."
The second infinitive phrase can be written like this: (to) work hard.
