  6. WORK SESSION • Recognize an indirect object when you see one. • Indirect objects are rare. You can read for pages before you encounter one. For an indirect object to appear, a sentence must first have a direct object. • Direct objects follow transitive verbs [a type of action verb]. • If you can identify the subject and verb in a sentence, then finding the direct object—if one exists—is

  7. WORK SESSION subject+ verb + what? or who? = direct object • Here are examples of the formula in action: • Jim built a sandcastle on the beach. • Jim = subject; built = verb. Jim built what? Sandcastle = direct object. • Sammy and Maria brought Billie Lou to the party. • Sammy, Maria = subject; brought = verb. • Sammy and Maria brought who? Billie Lou = direct object. • To explain the broken lamp, we told a lie. • We = subject; told = verb. We told what? Lie = direct object.

  8. WORK SESSION • When someone [or something] gets the direct object, that word is the indirect object. Look at these new versions of the sentences above: • Jim built his granddaughter a sandcastle on the beach. • Jim = subject; built = verb. Jim built what? Sandcastle = direct object. Who got the sandcastle? Granddaughter = indirect object. • So that Darren would have company at the party, Sammy and Maria brought him a blind date. • Sammy, Maria = subjects; brought = verb. Sammy and Maria brought who? Blind date = direct object. Who got the blind date? Him = indirect object. • To explain the broken lamp, we told Mom a lie. • We = subject; told = verb. We told what? Lie = direct object. Who got the lie? Mom = indirect object.

  9. Sometimes, the indirect object will occur in a prepositional phrase beginning with to or for. Read these two sentences: • Tomas paid the mechanic 200 dollars to fix the squeaky brakes. • Tomas paid 200 dollars to the mechanic to fix the squeaky brakes. • In both versions, the mechanic [the indirect object] gets the 200 dollars [the direct object].
