direct object vs. indirect object

Postby danuche » Thu Sep 23, 2010 6:23 pm

1. In the sentence JOHN FEELS HAPPY, the word happy is the direct object?
2. In the sentence GIVE ME the book me is the indirect object?
3. In the sentence THE BOY GREW TALL the word tall is the direct object?
4. The words turn the page cannot be used in a sentence?

Which is correct?

1. Not correct, "Feel" is a link verb followed by an adjective compliment.
(as opposed to "I feel his skin". Here feel is a normal verb followed by a direct object)
2. Correct, "me" is an indirect object.
3. Not correct tall is an adjective
4. I don't understand your question. "Turn the page" is a valid collocation.

Hope this helps.
