''...not to...'' or ''...to not...'' ''I shall learn not to / to not fail anymore'' ? ''She has been trying not to / to not grieve over her parents' divorce'' ''The warning tells us not to / to not cross over that stretch of land'' Which one is correct: ''not to'' or ''to not''? What is the difference between them? How might I know when I should use one or another? Thanks in advance.

Hi Luiz, you should normally say 'not to'.. Some people say 'to not..' is totally wrong but I think there might be cases where it's used like that.. .. I can't think of any right now.. it's not common. 'not to..' is safe, though.
