I didn’t completely understand what you were intending to say to me in your last post.
So, let me clarify something from my first post:
You asked very specifically about “no intention” (or “intention” similarly negated). So, that is specifically what I reacted to. I’ve now googled the following:
“no intention of” - 9,100,000
“no intention to” - 1,850,000
“any intention of” - 772,000
“any intention to” - 595,000
As I said, even though my first reaction was to reject the “no intention to” usage, I wanted to roll it around in my head a bit longer. I’ve now done a bit of rolling and have the following thoughts:
It may simply be the case that “no intention of” is more emphatic and/or reacts to something that is already happening or that has already happened whereas “no intention to” may be used to state an intention not to do something at all in a neutral, factual and non-reactive way.
As to your sentences, this is what I’d probably say:
a) I don’t have any intention of discussing that further.
b) I have no intention of discussing that (any) further.
c) I don’t intend to discuss that. (i.e., There hasn’t been and won’t be any discussion at all)
c) I don’t intend to discuss that any further. (There has already been some discussion and the speaker may be frustrated or annoyed.)
d) Let’s not discuss this anymore.
d) Let’s stop discussing this.
Because you brought it up, I’ve now also googled “intenting”. The results seem to be primarily from non-native speakers. But I didn’t say anything about “intenting” or “intent”. I mentioned using the verb intend in my first post. So, I don’t quite understand your intent in mentioning “intenting”.
Ms Google gave me the following results for the verb intend + to:
“intend to” - 75,000,000 results
“intends to” - 49,900,000 results
“intending to” - 14,100,000 results
“intended to” - 240,000,000 results :shock:
I think that should give you an idea why I mentioned using the verb + to.
The Google results from my house:
73,600,000 results for intention to (i.e., without any quotation marks)
45,600,000 results for “intention to” (i.e., with quotation marks)
I just love Madame Google… 8)
