    "An Infinitive Phrase is a group of words consisting of an infinitive and the modifier(s) and/or (pro)noun(s) or noun phrase(s) that function as the actor(s), direct object(s), indirect object(s), or complement(s) of the action or state expressed in the infinitive." So which one do you think is it or are you clueless?

    An infinitive phrase will begin with an infinitive (to + simple form of the verb). It will include objects and/or modifiers. Here are some examples: To smash a spider. To kick the ball past the dazed goalie. To lick the grease from his shiny fingers despite the disapproving glances of his girlfriend Gloria.
