I wonder if there is a difference in meaning between the two sentences that I give
The sentence number one is the one where I consider 1.(shaking) 2.(watching) to be an objective complement.
And the number two is the sentence for which I consider contains a relative, including a non-finite clause forms of relative.
In these two cases, obviously I think there is a grammatical difference, but I'm not sure what native English speakers think about it, besides it looks same with number one when a relative sentence become non-finite clause.
Is really different ? I'm asking if there is a delicate nuance.
- I felt the floor shaking
I felt the floor which is shaking = I felt the floor shaking
He may not kiss her in front of us watching
He may not kiss her in front of us who is watching = He may not kiss her in front of us watching
