Transitive Verb with Infinitive
I am an English teacher in Manila.
Sometimes I come across questions from my students that could be quite difficult to answer because I didn’t learn about it or even though surfing the Internet, couldn’t find the answer.
I even have questions myself which I can’t find answers to in our textbooks nor in English websites.
I hope Really-Learn-English can truly help me.
Consider this sentence:
David strives to finish his goals.
Is "strives" transitive? My initial response would be NO. However "to finish" is an infinitive acting as a noun. So is the answer YES. Is "strives" transitive?
I appreciate your help.
