In a fictional story whose setting is in New York, I came across the following line.
1. “I would surely not recommend dogs to go there.”A dictionary at hand says that this “recommend a person to-infinitive” pattern is British English and that in American English it is not standard. The dictionary further says that, instead of this pattern, they use “recommend that S’ V’…” pattern in the U. S. like #2 below.
2. "I would surely not recommend dogs go there."Do you agree with this description? I would like Americans, especially, to give any comment, please.
