I was listening to BBC while reading the script and the announcer said...

"Then I heard one of them say his parents were dinosaurs"

Is that correct? I don't think so.

    You think wrong. BBC are perfectly correct. – RegDwigнt Nov 7 '14 at 10:05
  • this question already has an answer ? No, it has never been asked before. I asked about word choice. "one say" does not make sense. not about something like " I heard him leaving " – 18yoPolyglot Nov 10 '14 at 7:17

"Say" in this sentence is an infinitive.
