When many people learn English, they get these two sentences confused, however by the end of today’s lesson you will learn how to use stop with gerunds and infinitives to improve your English grammar.

Stop to do: When you use stop with an infinitive it means that you are pausing one activity to do another. You’re taking a break from something in order to do something else. If I am working hard and want to take a break, then I will stop to drink coffee.

Stop doing: When you use stop with a gerund it means that you are quitting the action, you are giving up on doing the action and don’t plan to do it anymore. If caffeine makes me have trouble sleeping and I get jittery and have a headache after drinking it, then I will stop drinking coffee.

STOP!不定詞でstopを使う事と動名詞でstopを使う事の違いをご存知ですか? 多くの人が英語を学ぶと、これら2つの文が混乱しますが、今日の授業の終わりまでに、動名詞と不定詞を使って英文法を改善する方法を学びます。

不定詞とは何ですか?動名詞とは何ですか?:不定詞はto+動詞の原形であり、動名詞は動詞+ ingであることを忘れないでください。不定詞と動名詞はどちらも、文の主動詞の後の述語の一部として一般的に使います。 “I stopped to drink coffee”という文の中で、 ‘to drink’は不定詞です。 “I stopped drinking coffee,” という文の中で、’drinking’は動名詞です。

Stop to do: 不定詞でstopを使う場合、ある活動を一時停止して別の活動をしている事を意味します。あなたは何か他のことをするために休憩を取っています。もし私が一生懸命働いて休息したいなら、それをストップして珈琲を飲みます。

Stop doing: 動名詞でstopを使うと、その活動をやめて、あきらめ、もう実行する予定がないことを意味します。カフェインが原因で睡眠が困難になり、飲んだ後に震えたり頭痛がしたりした場合は、コーヒーを飲むのをやめます。
