    I tried to move the table 嘗試 去 move the table (simple past tense)

    I tried ( moving the table...........)<------I tried ( this action)

    No big difference !

    I only tried to scare you with the dead rat.

    Look! You pissed your pants. 沒有困難 沒有努力去嘗試做+完成

    I tried to talk( maybe I just picked up the phone and tried to reach him)可能沒有困難重重 to Mr.Lee, but failed. 失敗了

    He tried taking some sleeping pills before taking a nap, but he still could not rest. 失敗

    I tried taking some sleeping pills before taking a nap. I finally had a good rest.成功

    try to <------ has 2 meanings ( to 嘗試 or to make something right設法)

    It is how you make your sentences!

    try to ** try + verb+ing <------------- the results vary有變化

    When we try doing something, we do it and see what happens. When we try to do something, we make an effort to do it.

    eg. I am trying to make a car model.

    eg. I tried opening the window, but that didn't help. So I turned on the air-comnditioner.

    顯而易見, try doing係試一下做, 決心好大

    相反try to do係曾經嘗試過做, 成唔成事唔重要

    Try + Infinitive = 努力以赴去嘗試做,但可能困難重重或不可能完成.

    e.g. The lifeguard tried to save the drowned boy but he was certified dead.

    Try + Gerund = 嘗試對某事作實驗或者找到解決的方案.

    e.g. He could not sleep well at night so he tried drinking some warm milk before sleeping.

    結論: Try + Moving = 意謂嘗試把枱搬放在房的另一位置作實驗,看看效果如何.
