VERBS WITH TWO OBJECTS

schlechte horror spiele den der ler sidst ler bedst After certain verbs we use two objects. The objects are categorized into two as those being directly and indirectly affected by the action: “direct objects” and “indirect objects.” Usually indirect objects (my sister, me, him, George, etc.) are placed right after the verb and before the direct object (my pen, a cup of coffee, a book etc.).

I lent my sister my boots.

My mother made me a cup of coffee.

I’ll buy Jill a new dress.

 

For some of these verbs, we can change the places of the indirect object and the direct object. If we want to mention the direct object right after the verb, than we can use “to” or “for”.

I lent my boots to my sister.

My mother made a cup of coffee for me.

 

If the direct object is replaced by the pronouns “it” or “they”, then, these pronouns must be stated before the others.

I lent them to my sister.

My mother made it for me.
