-to dread-

Nota d'uso
Quando to dread è seguito da un verbo, questo può essere nella forma in -ing o all'infinito preceduto da to, a seconda del contesto. Se si vuole esprimere un sentimento di timore per un'azione, si utilizza la forma in -ing: He's dreading going back to school, ha paura di tornare a scuola. In combinazione con to think, si utilizza invece to + infinito: I dread to think (of) what the boss will say when she finds out, tremo al solo pensiero di ciò che dirà il capo quando lo scoprirà.
