combination of verbs.
I remember vaguely that I learnt in highschool that there are 5 verbs that following verbs should only be in present participle form. The only one I remember is the verb "see" e.g. I saw you walk down the street yesterday afternoon.
What are the 5 verbs and what are the rules?
First, the present participle is the 'ing' ending. So, it would be:
"Yesterday, I saw you walking on the street."
Second, I am not sure that there is any hard rule about this.
It is acceptable to say, for example, both:
I saw you walking yesterday. (participle)
I saw you walk across the street. (present simple)
