INDIRECT OBJECT: GRAMMAR AND EXERCISES

                   
Certain verbs nearly always have two objects,one of them direct and personal and the other indirect.                        Consider: Father gave a present to Mary. The direct object is a present and Mary is the indirect object. This sentence may also be written with the indirect object immediately after the transitive verb: Father gave Mary a present.
Notice that we drop the preposition in the second form of the sentence
Common verbs which often have two objects are: 
                                                                                            Note:                                           
give, tell, offer, fetch,and bring.
 
Explain,suggest,describe and propose are always followed by their direct objects: Explain the lesson to me.
 
EXERCISES: Rewrite these sentences putting the indirect object first after the verb. Note that the new sentence often sounds more natural to the English ear.
Note: Drop to and for.
