Gerunds and infinitives with reporting verbs?!? Is there any easy way to teach or learn this?

2 years ago
Hi Everybody,
With reporting verbs such as 'ask, say,apologize, shout' etc is there an easy(ier) way of teaching this except for just studying which ones are followed by a gerund (i.e 'he apologized for being') or 'to+infinitive' or 'to+object+infinitive' and is it actually possible to assimilate all these examples or do you learn them through reading and exposure?
