We often use the following verbs + object + to infinitive:
allow, beg, cause, enable, encourage, expect,
force, help, intend, invite,
mean, order, persuade, recommend, remind,
take (expressing time), teach, tell and warn.
After advise, persuade, remind, teach, tell, and
warn you can also use an
object + that clause, e.g. He advised me that I should stay off work for two
After the verb recommend you can use two alternatives:
a) object + to infinitive, e.g. He recommended me to take some cash.
b) a that clause, e.g. He recommended that I took some cash.
But you can't use
recommend + object + that clause:
He recommended me that I
took some cash .
We also often use object + infinitive with want,
would like, would love,
would prefer, would hate.
After these verbs a that clause is impossible.
I would hate that you
drink alcohol .
We call bare infinitive to an
infinitive without to.
We can use object + bare infinitive after let, make, and
help. The verb help
can be followed by object + to infinitive or bare infinitive. e.g. She helped
me (to) make the dinner.
When the structure make somebody do something is used in the passive
voice, it is followed by the to
infinitive. e.g. We were made to clean our rooms every morning.
