Summarizing, the alternatives are: "I-want to-go" (infinitive as noun, direct object) "I go+desire" (affix to show desire) and combinations. Why not "I want that I go"? Maybe with a subjunctive mood on "go"? Or, to make things shorter, you could elide the tense markers and pronouns and make them non-compulsory when context is clear. --Pablo Flores
