Usage notes[edit]

Used with verbs in the infinitive, without infinitive marker ("att"). However note that there may be a conjunction "att" (in the sense of "that") following right after. The first example is a case in point, which could be interpreted as They want that we are to help them or more naturally They want us to help them.
