‘Remember’ is a confusing verb because learners get confused with infinitives and gerunds (~ing verbs behaving as nouns).
Remember + noun phrase
The easiest way of using ‘remember’ is with nouns or noun phrases.
I remember you.
I remember the time we went to the zoo.
Remember + infinitive
When an infinitive follows remember it refers to an uncompleted action (or an action not yet begun).
I must remember to post that letter tomorrow.
Did you remember to buy milk?
Remember + gerund
This refers to a completed action in one’s memory.
I can’t remember locking the door. I hope I did it.
I remember visiting Spain every time I drink sangria.
You can also use the present perfect after ‘remember’ by using ‘having’ followed by the participle form of the main verb.
I remember having sent the letter because I sent my mother’s birthday card at the same time.
Do you remember having read the play at school we went to the theater to watch Blood Brothers?
Stop sign – Wikipedia.org
How to use ‘stop’ with another verb is difficult to remember for some students but there is an easy way to remember how to use it correctly.
Stop + infinitive
Using ‘stop’ with the infinitive (i.e. ‘stop to…’) means pausing because there is another different action that the person or thing does.
I had to stop to think about which way to go.
Will you stop to pick up some milk on the way home?
Stop + gerund
Using stop with a gerund (‘stop ..ing something) is generally used to talk about quitting something.
The doctor told him to stop smoking.
I need to stop working so hard.
Sometimes, using ‘..ing’ verbs that are not gerunds but continuous verbs make things difficult. If the ‘~ing’ does not come at the end of the clause or is not followed by a noun phrase then you may have a case like the one below, which is stop + infinitive.
I had to stop cooking to answer the telephone.
In infinitive forms, ‘and’ often replaces ‘to’.
I had to stop and think about which way to go.
I hope you don’t need to stop to think too much about how to use this verb in the future.
