Go 後面用 to-infinitive, bare-infinitive 定係 gerund
1. I went shopping yesterday.
2. I went to see a doctor yesterday.
3. You must go get your homework now.
to-infinitive, bare-infinitive 同埋 gerund 都有人用，究竟邊個先岩？？

(I) gerund (verb + ing) :
- can be used "after certain verbs"
eg. I enjoy cooking.
eg. The crowd kept moving forwards.
*eg. I went shopping yesterday.
(II) to + infinitive :
- can be used to SHOW PURPOSES
eg. He came to visit his uncle this morning.
(verb)( purpose )
eg. I went to see a doctor yesterday.
(verb)( purpose )
*eg. You must go to get your homework now.
(verb) ( purpose )
(III) bare infinitive (infinitive without 'to') :
- can be used :
a) after 'modal verbs'
eg. I will meet you tonight.
b) after 'let', 'make' and (sometimes) 'help'
eg. My parents let me go abroad.
c) after 'verbs of perception' --- see, watch, hear, notice, feel, sense
eg. I saw it walk away with a piece of meat in its mouth.
d) after 'Why'
eg. Why go out the night before your exam?
The verb "go" does not belong to any of the above (a,b,c or d)
✪ ∴ "go" 後面不會用 bare-infinitive ！
1. I went shopping yesterday. (✓) -- Type I ( go + gerund )
2. (a) I went to see a doctor yesterday. (✓) -- Type II ( go + to-infinitive )
(b) You must go get your homework now. (X) Should be :
You must go to get your homework now. (✓) -- Type II ( go + to-infinitive )
3. "go" 後面不會跟 bare-infinitive ！

Difference uses of intransitive verb "go":
1. travel to a place in order to take part in an activity or sport:
go (for) something
~ I went shopping yesterday. (correct)
2. travel from one place to another:
go to do something
~ I went to see a doctor yesterday. (correct)
3. move from one place to another, to show purpose or tell somebody what to do:
go (and) do something
~ You must go get your homework now. (correct; with "and" left out but not bare-infinitive)
