Dear all,

The other day I have heard a cameraman of a TV channel said the following words. I would like to know whether his words are grammatically correct.

"I am going to ask this guy who is going to tell the name of the flowers. So I am going to put the camera to him."


Thank you.

cat navy 425The other day I have heard a TV cameraman of a TV channel said say the following words.

1) No present perfect with 'the other day'. You need the past.
2) heard someone say; saw someone do. The second verb is always in the dictionary form (bare infinitive). The first verb carries the tense by itself.

"I am going to ask this guy who is going to tell viewers the name of the flowers. The first sentence doesn't seem right. I'd edit it as shown.


So I am going to put the camera to on him." No, I'd expect 'on'.
