This question already has an answer here:
After can see/hear, can the bare infinitive be used?
I could see John get on the bus.
We can say "I could see John getting on the bus," but is it possible to say "I could see John get on the bus."
This is in response to Roguemue's comment that this is a replicant of a post. Roguermue's suggested post is about the verb hear + personal pronoun: this post is about the modal + can + see/hear + infinitive without to. To go on further, as posted down below, it was my assumption that the construction is okay, but Swan, Practical English Usage, wrote that it's an invalid construction "After can see/hear only the -ing structure is used. I could see John getting on the bus. (NOT J could see John get ... ) These structures can be used after passive forms of hear and see. In this case, the infinitive has to." (Practical English Usage, 242, pg. 222)
I am looking to either confirm Swan's usage rule or to find opposing evidence.
