Grammar Pattern 29
Noun + Verb + Noun + Movement

Model Sentence
The boss gave some advice to his workers

The end of Sentence Pattern 29 is usually called an "indirect object". What does that really mean? It means there is some kind of movement - something is moving to another place. For example, in the Model Sentence above, what happened to the advice? It "moved" from the boss to the workers. Most grammar books make this pattern seem very difficult, but it's not. Just learn the sentences below!
