Hello guys!As far as I know, try to lớn V means that you are attempting to vày something & eventually fail, while try Ving means that you thử nghiệm with some other methods or tools to see if it works, in which case the action is completed.However, I am wondering if these two structures can be used in the same sentences và apply to lớn the same verb but with convey different meanings.I know this might sound complicated. Please look at the example below:1. I was tied to a tree. I tried lớn cut the rope with my teeth but it didn"t work. Then I try cutting it with my nail, which failed as well. 2. I received a gift yesterday. I tried to xuất hiện it but the whole box was tied with a rope. Then I try cutting the rope with a pair of scissors but it didn"t work. Do these two sentences make sense?The "try to" part represents the attempt to lớn achieve a goal. While the "try ving" part means that some other methods are tried khổng lồ see if it works.I have this question because sometimes English verbs can mean that you have done the action but the effect might not be successful. I can say "Try opening the door with this key", which means that you can use this key as a thử nghiệm to open that door, but it doesn"t that I am telling you lớn literally "open the door with this key and let"s see what would happen next."Or maybe I should say "Try using this key to open the door" I hope I have made it clear enough.Any suggestions are welcome.Thanks.

Hello people!Are you sure we"re all guys?As far as I know, try to V means that you are attempting to do something và eventually fail, It does not mean you eventually fail. You can try and succeed.while try Ving means that you kiểm tra with some other methods or tools to see if it works,No, no other methods are implied.in which case the action is completed.It might complete the action and it might not. Trying does not imply success or failure. It simply means attempting, making an effort.However, I am wondering if these two structures can be used in the same sentences và apply lớn the same verb Yes, they can.but with convey different meanings.No, they can"t.I know this might sound complicated. Please look at the example below:1. I was tied to a tree. I tried to cut the rope with my teeth but it didn"t work. Then I tried cutting it with my nail, which failed as well. 2. I received a gift yesterday. I tried to mở cửa it but the whole box was tied with a rope. Then I tried cutting the rope with a pair of scissors but it didn"t work. Do these two sentences make sense?Yes, as corrected.The "tried to" part represents the attempt to lớn achieve a goal, That"s right.while the "tried ving" part means that some other methods were tried lớn see if they worked.That"s right, too. I have this question because sometimes English verbs can mean that you have done the action but the effort might not be successful. To fail is khổng lồ be unsuccessful. I can"t think of a word that means might not succeed.I can say "Try opening the door with this key", which means that you can use this key as a thử nghiệm to mở cửa that door, but it doesn"t mean that I am telling you to lớn literally (no quotation marks, this isn"t a quote) open the door with this key and (delete let"s) see what happens next.

Yes, it does. That"s exactly what it means.Or maybe I should say "Try using this key to xuất hiện the door." That"s fine, too. They"re both correct and natural and mean the same thing.I hope I have made it clear enough.Yes, you have. Any suggestions are welcome.Thanks.

The meaning of the verb try doesn"t change when you use other conjugations, such as trying.This is true of all verbs. Changing conjugations does not change definitions.
