The infinitive serves to define the meaning of adjectives, adverbs, and substantives, especially those denoting ability, fitness, capacity, etc. (and their opposites), and generally those analogous in meaning to verbs which take the infinitive ( cross2000). Here the datival meaning (purpose, destination) is often apparent. Cp. cross1969.
