VERBS of SENSE

VERBS of SENSE


                   
  Study this example situation :    
                   
  Tom got into his car and drove away. You saw this. 
  You can say :           
                   
  I saw Tom get into his car and drive away.
                   
  After verbs of senses followed by infinitive without to
                   
                   
                   
  I saw him fall to the ground. { I saw the complete 
  action              
  I saw the accident happen. { I saw the accident
  completely  from bigining to end.}  
                   
  but verbs of sense can be formed with V-ing
  Subject + verb of sense + object + V -ing { not finish
  action. }              
                   
  I've never seen Tom dancing.    
  I didn't hear you coming in.      
  Listen to the bird singing.      
  I could hear it raining.        
  Did you notice anyone going out?  
                   
  After smell and find you can use     
  the  - ing structure only :      
                   
  Can you smell something burning?  
  She found him reading her letters.
