(In this question, I will use "Volitional" to mean "V-(よ)う".)
As I understand it,
Volitional + と + する is a phrase meaning "to try to do something". I've also seen similar phrases, but with different verbs instead of
する. Here are some examples, some of which may be incorrect:
- 着ようと決める （？）
- 着ようと出す （？？）
I'd like to analyze this as a general pattern,
Volitional + と + Verb. Here are my questions:
- Is it a mistake to try to analyze this as a general pattern?
- What exactly is the grammar in this pattern?
- Specifically, what function does
- Is there a fixed list of verbs that can be used after
Please let me know if I'm thinking about this the wrong way.
