  • I’m sorry ,but I have a question to ask. We can say “I try to persuade him to change his mind”and”i’ll make her to change her mind” but can we say “I’ ll change her mind” or “He changed my mind”I look forward to your answer. thank you.

  • Jia Liu: thanks for your question. Any of the following constructions are possible:
    1. I’ll try to persuade him to change his mind
    2. I’ll make her change her mind [but not: “I’ll make her to change her mind’]
    3. I’ll change her mind/He changed my mind
    Number 3 is much less likely than the others (and therefore less frequent ): usually you change your own mind, not someone else’s mind. So you say ‘I’ll change her mind’ you mean you feel confident that you will be able to persuade her to change her mind. So it’s not ‘incorrect’, it’s just rather unusual.
