stupid machine answer

machine says: would like to go is wrong


but it suggests would like TO GO sleep






I feel like going to see Aunt Mildred today. Do you would like want to go with me?


would like: The expression 'would like' can only be followed be verb in the full infinitive form: I would like TO GO to sleep.


Using it in this sentence would be grammatically incorrect.
want: We use 'want' here because the verb 'to go' is in the infinitive form. The conjugated verb 'want' can only be followed by a verb in its full infinitive form: I want TO EAT, she wants TO SING.
