“I Seen What The Rumbling Noise Is!”
No! “I SAW what the rumbling noise is!”
Seen can only be used after the words “has” or “have” (in full or contracted form).
I see this mistake every day and it drives me bonkers. Sorry.
The correct grammar would be " I saw what made the rumbling noise" smartypants, but it doesn't matter. I understood perfectly what the OP meant, and her grammar does not mean she didn't see and hear what she said she saw and heard.
The most profound analogy so far has been the one comparing this sound with an ultrasound machine. That really makes me wonder if the sound heard has more to do with what the the craft might be doing while its hovering over people's homes and towns than anything to do with its propulsion system. Could the cloaking device also be contributing to the sound by bending sound as well as light??
