In my last two posts on this topic, I looked at five important rules for using gerunds (verbs that end in “-ing”) and infinitives (“to…” verbs). You can go back to those posts to see all five rules in detail, with lots of examples.

The featured verb is ice fish, which means “to fish on top of a frozen lake by drilling a hole in the ice.” It’s a popular pastime in my cold home state of Wisconsin, USA. So I guess this comic delivers a cultural lesson too! J
