Japanese 104 - Expressing purpose with the verb stem + に

By combining a verb stem + the particle + the verb or , you can express the reason for going or coming somewhere. Using this pattern it is possible to make sentences like "I am going shopping" or "He came to see his friend." Place the verb stem of the word that expresses the purpose before the particle. See the below table for some example sentences using this pattern.
