Subject and Object

Postby mentarget » Sat Jul 13, 2013 7:35 am

There Alan, from the sentence, "Jimmy threw a pencil at Eric." I know that "Jimmy is the subject and Eric is the object.

What is "a pencil"?

I need to explain to my students.

Thanks.

Not quite, I'm afraid.

'Pencil' is the direct object. 'Eric' is simply a prepositional object.
