Sample text

Preliminary remarks The verb forbid is in usual cases followed by to-infinitives in Present-day English, as the following examples illustrate: Additionally this clause forbids the seller to use the order or his connection with the buyer as a reference sale or generally for advertising or publicity purposes. (Richard Christou, Drafting commercial agreements, from BNC) … it forbids us to pretend to do something which in fact cannot be done (FLOB, G) At the same time, however, examples followed by gerunds with or without the preposition from are also available on occasions with this verb.

The occurrence of negation in this example, therefore, displays how the mixture of the two types of forbid was taking place during the early Modern English period.

Verbs of implicit negation and to-infinitives 33 Middle English period in the OED quotations, Figure 1 elucidates the overall shifts of complements of the verb forbid fairly clearly. 33 The rise of gerunds is also witnessed during the Modern English period in Figure 1, but on the whole its use is much less frequent than infinitives throughout the history of English. In other words, the shift from to-infinitives to gerunds is not so evident with the verb under consideration. Since I have already quoted some historical examples of that-clauses above, I will provide in the following some illustrations of to-infinitives and gerunds quoted from the OED: He forbiddeth vs also to haue any by lusting.
