Why do I say The man watched the whale jump and not the man watched the whale jumps, given that the whale is a singular noun with which the verb should agree.
Thanks all for your answers. Damian, you are right and I agree with you, but if I am to explain this to someone, is the rule -use the infinitive when the object performs the action, as the verb in focus is that which is connected to the subject:watched?
