Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "V"

The meaning of "V" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa get to V?
A: ~できる(単純に「可能である」のではなく、「~できる!嬉しい!ラッキー!」という意味合いで)

I get to see my girlfriend tomorrow! 明日彼女に会える!
(I can see my girlfriend tomorrow だと不自然、というか同じニュアンスが伝わらない)

I get to go to Disneyland! ディズニーランドに行ける!
I got to talk to the president of the USA! アメリカの大統領と話せた!
Q: O que significa How would you like to V~??
A: Not too much difference. “How would you like to...” is sometimes used when you’re surprising someone.

“How would you like... to go to Disneyland?”

Otherwise they’re pretty interchangeable. “How would you like to” is a little bit dated, older people would use it.
Q: O que significa V + up
V + off
V + out

This matter confuses me.

And there is other V + [...]?

For example:

Learn out
Learn off
Learn up?
A: None of those examples with "learn" make sense.

You just have to memorize which verbs take different prepositions and adverbs.

Take up someone's offer.
Take off your hat.
Take out the trash.

You must write (up) a report for your boss.
Don't write him off! (Don't doubt his ability/potential)
Write out your full name.

There is no rule. Just memorization :)
Q: O que significa V + up

This matter confuses me.

And there is other V + [...]????
A: @Gurugru_94 No entiendo tu pregunta
Q: O que significa what does the "V" and "yet" mean ??
A: "Yet" here means 不過

"V'ice" is a pun (雙關語). "Vice" means 淫樂 - it's saying the ice cream is so good it's a sin.

Example sentences using "V"

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com like + to V or like+ V-ing.
A: when you use "I would like to..." is that you want to do something in the future.

Using "I like to+v" and "I like + v-ing" both mean that you enjoy doing something.
Is not a set rule, but "like +to v" can be used when you enjoy doing something regularly, but you're not doing it right now.

And "like+v-ing" can be used when you enjoy something you're doing in that moment.
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com be yet to V.
A: I think I understand what you mean, the phrase isn't really used in present tense (with the word "be" or "are" for example) but it is used with "have" so some examples would be:

We have yet to schedule our lunch plans.
I have yet to call my mother.
She has yet to do her homework.
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com keep + V.
A: Check the question to view the answer
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com so as to V.
A: it means, "in order to", "so that I can", "so that I'm able to".

I'm going to eat less so as to lose 10 lbs
I'm going to eat less in order to lose 10 lbs.
I'm going to eat less so that I can lose 10 lbs.

I'm going to save up money so as to purchase a car.
I'm going to save up money in order to purchase a car.
I'm going save up money so that I can purchase a car.

"so as not to"
I'm leaving now so as not to be late for my son's baseball game.
I'm leaving now so that I'm not late for my son's baseball game.

"so as to" and "so as not to" aren't used too frequently, at least as far as I know. I'm not sure when I'd use them in daily speech. They might be most suitable for anecdotes, formal, or technical writing/speech. Maybe someone else has something to say about that.

Synonyms of "V" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre like to V e like V ing ?
A: no difference in this case, but keep in mind there is a difference after some verbs
Q: Qual é a diferença entre don't V e V not e not V ?
A: For most verbs, "don't V" = "V not", for example "don't worry" = "worry not", but "V not" often sounds more formal or old-fashioned, and sometimes quite unnatural.

"not V" is only really used in conjunction with another verb e.g. "I told you to not worry". Not all verbs can be used with "don't", for example you can't say "I don't must leave", you have to say "I must not leave".

"V not" is best avoided, because it can cause confusion, especially when combined with other verbs. "I don't want to see you" is fine, but "I want not to see you" is unnatural and slightly confusing.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre forget to V e forget V-ing ?
A: to forget to do = you intended to do something but didn't do it because you forgot

to forget doing = to do something but have no memory of it
Q: Qual é a diferença entre used to V e would often V ?
A: Used to doesn't require a time frame. So you could say: '"I used to play basketball" and people will understand you. If you say "I would often play basketball" it sounds unnatural because you are missing a time period like you would often play basketball when? "I would often play basketball when I was younger"
Q: Qual é a diferença entre You should V ~. e Why don't you V~ ?
A: "You should" can be rude, depending on who you are talking to. It's more direct and you are clearly giving advice. They can mean the same thing, but "why don't you?" Is more polite and less forceful.

Other questions about "V"

Q: when s+ V
as S +V

i'm still a litte confused

could i have knowledge of their differences?
A: "I walk on the bridge as the sun sets." means it's still setting, it hasn't gone down yet.

"I walk on the bridge when the sun sets." could mean it's already set, it's a little more ambiguous as to whether it's still going down or has gone down.
Q: for having it..

for + V ing.. is it possible to use this?
A: Yes.

For example:

Thanks for having me here.
Thanks for having it ready for me.
Q: I won't try as hard + to V as I did.
I won't try as hard as I did + to V. soa natural?
A: I think the second one sounds more natural! Both are grammatically correct. But the first one might be a little confusing, so you could add:

“I won’t try as hard to *impress him* as I did *yesterday*”
“I won’t try as hard to *be perfect* as I did *in high school*”

In this case, it makes sense to put the “as I did...” at the end. However, the second one works just as well, too!
Q: I understand meaning of 'intend to V', but I'm not sure meaning of "to intend someone to V". What's difference between those. Please let me know. Thank you!
A: That sentence structure does not sound natural.
You can say instead:
I plan for you to V
I was hoping you would V
I want you to V
Intend sounds weird in the way you ask.
Q: used to + V / be used to + Ving ?

A: "I used to drink coffee in the morning, but now I drink lemon water instead"
"i used to not go on hikes, but now i do."
"I'm used to waking up early. I can get used to doing yoga when I get off duty." I hope this helped!
