I'm confused in regards to using special verbs such as help, let, make, watch, etc.
I was told that when special verbs are used, a present tense must be used. For example,
Watched/watch him run (always "run" and never "ran")
Hear/heard the car drive off (never drove)
I'm finding that this is not always the case in the following situations
I heard you took off
I heard you left
Can someone please explain to me how to use special verbs and why these two examples differ?
I'm here quite often ;-)
