Mensagem:  Pat, "At another window, someone else was watching Jack play". The translation to Portugues would really be: Em outra janela, alguém estava olhando Jack BRINCAR. Then, I believe "play" is really an infinitive without a "to", both in English and in Portugues. If "play" was a present tense, it would be "plays", wouldn't it? What do you think? Isn't it just a case of ommission? That is, you can omit or not the "to"? Maria Valeska
