不定式由“to＋动词原形”构成，有时to可以省略，其否定形式是“not to do”。不定式没有人称和数的变化，但有时态、语态的变化。不定式不能作谓语，但可以作主语、宾语、状语、表语、定语和补语，本章节主要讲解不定式作定语和状语的用法。

2.在序数词、形容词最高级、顺序词（the last，the next等）、the only、等修饰的名词/代词后用不定式作后置定语。(动词不定式与被修饰词之间有逻辑上的主谓关系)

4.在某些由动词、形容词派生的名词，由于他们的词根配不定式（如decide to do; be able to do; plan to do)，因而这些名词后也常接不定式作定语，常见的有∶decision、ability、plan、promise、plan、offer、warming、attempt，willingness，tendency等等。

③修饰性关系：不定式前的名词是它修饰的对象，它所修饰的词多为抽象名词，如：need, time, way, right, chance, courage, reason, wish, movement…

不定式由“to+动词原形”构成，其否定形式是“not to do”。

He started early in order not to be late.为了不迟到，他早早就动身了。
不定式前可加in order或者so as构成以下两个句式做目的状语，功能同“to do”
（1）in order to+动词原形（可置于句首或句尾），意为“为了”。例如：
（2）so as to+动词原形（只能至于句末，不能置于句首）意为“为了”。例如：
John went to California in order to make a fortune.
2. 不定式作结果状语（通常出现在句尾,常用于固定搭配中：only to do; too…to do；so…as to do; such…as to do; …enough to do）
（1）表示出人意料或者不太好的结果时，用only to do.
I hurried to the station, only to find the train had left.我匆匆赶到车站，结果发现火车已经开走了。
（2）“too …to …”结构常表示”太……而不能……”
He is too weak to do the work.他身体太弱，不能做这项工作。
①但 too 之前如果有only 时，则不定式表肯定。因为only too表示”非常;很”之意。
I’ll be only too pleased to help them out with any questions.我非常乐意为他们答疑解惑。
②too后如果是 happy, glad, pleased, satisfied, ready之类的形容词时，不定式也表示肯定意义。

（3）so +adj./adv.+as (not) to do 或such +n.+as (not) to do句型，表示“如此……以至于……”。例如：
The house is so high and narrow as to resemble a tower.这个房子又高又狭窄，像一座塔。
I’m such a fool as to think that she is a warm-hearted woman.我真傻，竟以为她是个热心肠的女人。
（4）adj./adv. + enough to do，意为“足以去做……”。例如：

begin with (首先)，to do him justice(说句对他公道的话), to be sure(诚然)，to be honest(实话说)。
