• Using to

      The word to functions as both the infinitive marker (“To be or not to be, that is the question.”) and as a preposition implying direction. In spoken and informal written English, it is common to come across the following contruction.

      He had no inclination to go to Sweden and investigate the case.

      This construction is not technically grammatically correct. The correct form is to repeat the word to before each verb, even if to is also used as a preposition.

      He had no inclination to go to Sweden to investigate the case.

      As a matter of style, to (used as an infinitive marker) can be used one time before a list of verbs. To is then understood to apply to each verb.

      She wants to travel, [to] have adventures, and [to] drive from coast to coast.
