Infinitives

The infinitive consists of to plus a verb: to read, to write, to "talk story".

An infinitive phrase that stands alone creates a fragment.

An infinitive phrase will not be a fragment if a helping verb is added to it.

An infinitive phrase will not be a fragment if it is added onto a main clause.

An infinitive can serve as an adjective or noun modifier.

An infinitive or an infinitive phrase can also act as a subject.
