Unit 52. Verb + -ing (enjoy doing / stop doing etc.)
(глагол + -ing)

Look at these examples:

After enjoy, mind and suggest, we use -ing (not to…).

Here are some more verbs that are followed by -ing:

stop
finish
delay
postpone
fancy
imagine
consider
avoid
admit
deny
miss
risk
involve
practise

Note the negative form not -ing:

We also use -ing after:

give up (= stop)
put off (= postpone)
carry on / go on (= continue)
keep or keep on (= do something continuously or repeatedly)

With some verbs you can use the structure verb + somebody + -ing:

Note the passive form (being done/seen/kept etc.):

When you are talking about finished actions, you can say having done/stolen/said etc.:

But it is not necessary to use having (done). You can also use the simple -ing form for finished actions:

For regret, see Unit 55.

After some of the verbs on this page (especially admit/deny/suggest) you can use that…:

For suggest, see Unit 34.
