Could someone explain to me how 遊ぶ becomes 遊びにって? I don’t understand how this relates to に行く.
Did you see it somewhere or?
Anyway it sounds like a verbal contraction to me.
遊びにいく to go to play/hang out
にいって to go to play and… (As a てverb here)
に ends in the same sound as い so without more information, you either missed the い if listening, or it’s a contraction. Or maybe just a typo
This little convenient chart is probably what should be in the grammar point itself, as I’m having lots of difficulties with it.
Thank you for creating it.
