Stop:

(Oxford Learner"s Dictionary)

Compare:

He stopped khổng lồ look at the window shop. (He was walking and he stopped in order to lớn look at the window shop)

He stopped looking at the windows siêu thị. (He was looking at the window siêu thị and decided not to lớn look at it any longer)

We use the -ing size after stop khổng lồ indicate that an action or sự kiện is no longer continuing:

It’s stopped raining. Let’s go for a walk. (It was raining, but not any more.)

We use the to-infinitive after stop to indicate that someone stops doing something in order to bởi vì something else:

On the way to lớn London, we stopped khổng lồ look at an old castle. (We were travtienhieptruyenky.coming, then we stopped our journey in order to lớn look at the castle.)
