Differences: doing vs. to do

Posted on Wed 24 Nov 2010 @ 11.27am UTC

Two sentences, almost identical, except for the words in blue boldface.

Is there a difference in meaning?

I can’t. I’ve got something doing this Saturday. (1)

I can’t. I’ve got something to do this Saturday. (2)

Forget Googling — I’ve saved you the bother of doing that, and there’s nothing to help you.


It’s because the real verb bloc is got … doing/to do. So good ole’ Intarwebz is next to useless to help you with this.
