Indirect Objects Embed

  1. 1. Indirect Objects By: Chris Nowak
  2. 2. What are indirect objects? <ul><li>An indirect object precedes the direct object and tells to whom or for whom the action of the verb is done and who is receiving the direct object. There must be a direct object to have an indirect object. Indirect objects are usually found with verbs of giving or communicating like give, bring, tell, show, take, or offer. An indirect object is always a noun or pronoun which is not part of a prepositional phrase. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How to Find Indirect Objects <ul><li>Find the prepositional phrase(s) of the sentence and label it. </li></ul><ul><li>Next, find the subject of the sentence and label it. </li></ul><ul><li>Third, find the verb, and label it as either linking or action. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for the noun that receives the action of the verb. Label it as the direct object. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for the noun that tells to whom or for whom the action of the verb is done and who is receiving the direct object. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that linking verbs CAN’T have direct OR indirect objects. They have predicate adjectives and nouns. </li></ul><ul><li>A good trick to find out the indirect object is to ask yourself for whom/to whom is the direct object being _______ (insert verb here). </li></ul>
