  • 1. Direct Objects By: Chris Nowak
  • 2. What are Direct Objects?
    • A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of a verb or shows the result of the action. It answers the question "What?" or "Whom?" after an action verb. An action verb with a direct object is called a transitive verb.
  • 3. How to Find Direct Objects
    • Find the prepositional phrase(s) of the sentence and label it.
    • Next, find the subject of the sentence and label it.
    • Third, find the verb, and label it as either linking or action.
    • Look for the noun that receives the action of the verb. Label it as the direct object.
    • Remember that linking verbs CAN’T have direct OR indirect objects. They have predicate adjectives and nouns.
    • A good trick to find out the direct object is to ask yourself what is being _______ (insert verb here).
