What is a Direct Object? A Direct Object is: a noun or pronoun that takes the action of the verb. Only action verbs that are transitive can take direct objects. The Direct Object answers the question WHAT or WHOM after the verb. What is an Indirect Object? An Indirect Object is: a noun or pronoun that follows a transitive verb and answers the questions: To Whom or What? For Whom or What? It is very rarely that it can occur without the use of a Direct Object also and usually only in informal dialogue, such as when Juliet (of Romeo and Juliet) says about the sleeping potion: “Give me! Give me! Tell me not of fear!” Object pronouns: First person: Second person: Third person: me you him, her, it, them
Examples: 1. Ron gave his teammate the ball. (Teammate is the I.O.; ball is the D.O.) 2. Kristy told me her secret. (Me is the I.O.; secret is the D.O.) 3. Julio laid the book here. (Book is the D.O.)
