Why is the verb « aller » inserted in the answer ? « nous te disons de ne pas aller te coucher » . Why isn’t it « nous te disons de ne pas te coucher » ?
I have checked and the only answer accepted is -
with no verb 'aller' although as Jim says the expression -
aller se coucher
is also to go to bed
As I understand it, "aller se coucher" (se mettre au lit) is a locution verbale (phrasal verb)
I believe this to be the reason why "aller" has been introduced.
Hope this helps.
