When it comes to 'watching people', is it correct? Certainly!

One can watch people.

She watched the kids playing in the yard

...says OALD.

That said, Sarah has been watching you for the entire time.

  • note that he said the entire time, not this entire time. ("this" would be grammatical, but not the usual way to say it) Apr 8, 2015 at 7:03
  • @BrianHitchcock you mean 'the entire time' is ungrammatical?
