Using 2 Object Verbs
2015/03/31
As you may remember from last week there are some verbs which take 2 objects. Some of these 2 object verb chunks are invertible, and some are not invertible. If you need to remind yourself about this, have a look at last week’s article before you go on. Here we are going to look at both kinds of 2 object verbs, beginning with non-invertible.
 
Non-invertible 2 object verb chunks
 
Task 1: Study the language bank below.
 
 get s/th from s/o
 
 call s/o about s/th
 
 
 receive s/th from s/o
 
 take s/th from s/o
 
 take s/th to s/o
 
 
Task 2: Insert one of these phrases into the correct sentence below.
 
about their decision  
 
from foreign customers  
 
 to the meeting
 
 from the consultant
 
 from them
 
 
1. Can you get the report as soon as possible, please?
2. I need to call head office to close the department.
3. I receive about 25 emails every day.
4. I don’t want to take any money.
5. I don’t want to take the projector.
 
Task 2. Feedback:
1. Can you get the report from the consultant as soon as possible, please?
2. I need to call head office about their decision to close the department.
3. I receive about 25 emails from foreign customers every day.
4. I don’t want to take any money from them.
5. I don’t want to take the projector to the meeting.
 
*Notice that the information in the phrases is not necessary. However, if you want to include this information in the sentence, you need to use the preposition before the second object.
 
*Take great care to learn these chunks correctly. The difficulty is remembering which preposition you need before the second object.
 
Ok, now let’s look at invertible 2 object verb chunks.

Task 3: Read the email and find the verb chunks from the language bank in the email. Underline them and notice how they are used.
 give s/o s/th
 give s/th to s/o
 send s/o s/th
 send s/th to s/o
 
Dear Mary,
I apologise for the delay in replying to you. Further to your questions about filing procedure, please see the description below.
1. When you send someone a report, please also give the filing clerk a copy of it.
2. If someone gives a document to you, send a copy of it to the filing clerk.
Hopefully this will all be much easier when we get the system computerized, but till then, please follow the above procedure.
If you have any questions, call me.
Regards,
Mary’s supervisor
 
Task 4: Correct the sentences in the left hand column by rewriting them in the right hand column. Look at the example.
 I’ll give to you the report later.
I’ll give you the report later.
 Please send the details of the project me as soon as you can.
 
 She usually sends to her boss the figures every Friday.
 
 We need to give more space the new people.
 
 Can you give Mary to a hand?
 
 We don’t give any overtime pay our staff.
 
 They have to send everything us by courier, as their server is down.
 
 We usually give to our staff a bonus on their birthday
 
 Please do not send to us any junk mail.
