No, what makes you think so? They are bare infinitives.

2- If a verb have the same form in the present, past, and past participle, then how to know if such a sentence 'I watched the woman cut off her hair and slit her wrists." might be correct or not. There is no indication that 'cut' or 'slit' is a bare infinitive or a finite verb form since it has the same verb forms. I.e. How to know if 'cut' or 'slit' is bare infinitive, which is correct to be used after this kind of verb patterns "(Hear, See, etc. + object + bare infinitive or -ing form)" or a finite verb form in its second form(Past), which is incorrect to be used after this kind of verb patterns "(Hear, See, etc. + object + bare infinitive or -ing form)".

Well, if you are using the correct form of the verb, the fact that an incorrect form is spelled the same is irrelevant!

It is like using a word that has two different meanings. For example, "table" can mean either an item of furniture or a list of figures. If you pointed to the item of furniture and said "that table", everyone would assume you were using the word correctly and not referring to an invisible list of figures! It is the same with forms of a verb - the context will determine which form you are actually using.

ok

And that's what this message board is about . . . asking questions and learning how to improve our English by making mistakes (or preventing them from being published).
