A split infinitive is where a word or phrase comes between the marker to and the infinitive form of a verb.

A famous split infinitive occurs in the opening sequence of the Star Trek television series: to boldly go where no man has gone before. Here, the adverb "boldly" splits the full infinitive "to go".
