Hello everyone,

Someone told me the right sentence is 'watching the world GO by' and not 'watching the world GOES by' cause the verb to WATCH is followed by another verb in the infinive without TO. It would always happens with the verbs WATCH, SEE e HEAR.

 

The verb GO doesn't match with 'the world' ?

 

Is there a better explanation to that ?

 

Thanks in advance

Lia
