Mensagem:  M Swan practical English usage – part 620

After want we use the infinitive with to – I don’t want to do that again

Want can be followed by object + to-infinitive structure – do you want me to make you some coffee?

Want meaning ‘need’ can be followed by –ing form with a passive meaning in Br Eng – your hair wants cutting
