Abstract: begin(start)to-Vとbegin(start)V-ingの意味の相違について,最初はDeclerck(1991)が示した双方の間の相違について批判し,その後,potentialityとperformance,a point in time とduration in timeなどの観点から双方の相違を検討した.このpoint of timeとduration in timeはbegin(start)to-Vとbegin(start)V-ingの意味の根本的な相違を示すもので,point in timeを示すbegin(start)to-Vはsuddenly,all at onceのような語と共起し,duration in timeを示すbegin(start)V-ingはalways,often,usually,regularlyなどと共起している. / Regarding the difference between begin (start)+infinitive and begin (start)+gerund, there are some who simply dismiss it by saying that there is not much difference between the two. There are, however, cases in which there certainly exist some differences in meaning between the two. This article explores, first, the validity of Declerck's differentiation between the two, and then discusses some major differences that exist between the two: the differences in terms of potentiality and performance, and in terms of a point in time and duration in time, All in all, I am sure that I was able to make a number of important new discoveries in this study that had not been made by the grammars in the U. S. and the U. K.
