Hi - I see from a previous discussion that the meaning of a verb (e.g. commencer à/ commencer de) can slightly change depending on whether it is followed by à or de. Is this also true for continuer à / continuer de?
Are there also slight differences in meanings with the verbs mentioned above?
Thanks - Tammy
If you take a look at my answer to a similar question -
But on the whole, continuer à is more used than the 'de' version and the difference is minimal.
Hope this helps!
According to this site, which has what seems to be a good section on this topic, commencer à/de is probably not the best example of a verb that changes meaning with à/de, and continuer à/de is placed in the same category. Hope the link helps.
