Mensagem:  Caro Jorge,

No caso do verbo stop é interessante notar que pode haver diferenca de sentido quando vc usa TO ou ING. Veja:
He stopped reading that newspaper.
(Ele parou DE ler aquele jornal.)
He stopped (doing whatever he was doing) TO read the newspaper.
(Ele parou -o que estava fazendo- para ler o jornal.)

Um abraço,

Ronaldo
