Verb+ Infinitive or Gerund with a change of meaning

 I would humbly add "TRY" to the list: The difference between try + gerund and try + infinitive is very subtle. "Try + gerund" means to experiment with an action that might be a solution to your problem. "Try + infinitive" means to make an effort to do something. For example, if I am trying to learn English (try + infinitive -- this is the end goal -intentar-), I could try watching grammar videos on youtube or speaking with a native speaker (try + gerund-- these actions might be solutions to my problem -probar-).
