something that I would do
I see sleep turtle.
Is there any native England here? Why is sleep not sleeps? The turtle is a singular noun, isn't it?
It’s because “sleep” is modifying like an adjective.
I see/watch the child eat.
He sees/watches the bird fly.
And why is it not sleeping?
Adjective is a poor way to define it. Subordinate clause is better.
It's sort of like a sub-sentence that has its own conjugation.
Original answer is wrong imo.
The two correct options are:
I watch the turtle to sleep.
I watch the turtle sleeping.
could you give us any link to prove it? I cannot find the evidence of that although I googled quite a long. ( it would be curious to know.
I think so !!! False
Tôi coi con rùa ngủ.
"I see the sleeping turtle" can anyone explain me what is wrong with that?
