Hello! Nice Sunday? Here it?s cloudy but the sun
is trying to sweep away all those clouds which
don?t let him look at me! :lol:
Well, I?m sorry for distracting (?) attention from the
Anyway, I would like you to explain to me the
difference between be sorry for + gerund and be sorry to +
infinitive. I?ve been taking a look at my grammar book
and says (because my grammar book speaks clearly :oops: and is very talkative as well, didn?t you know? ) ) that ‘be sorry for + gerund’ means apologize
or regret and ‘be sorry to+ infinitive’ can express
regret or sadness.
So, How can I know when I have to use one or
another if both of them express regret?
I?ve been thinking about some examples.
1.- I am sorry for interrupting you
2.- I am sorry to interrupt you
3.- I am sorry for having told you such lies.
4.- I am sorry that you must abandon the job.
5.- I am sorry to tell you the truth.
6.- I am sorry to run your cat over.
7.- I am sorry for running your cat over.
Can you correct them, please?
Thank you very much indeed!
