Direct object

From Teflpedia

A direct object is a noun phrase (noun or pronoun) or clause which follows a verb used transitively and directly 'suffers' the action denoted by the verb:

For example, in English:

  • Peter is reading the book.
  • He loves it.

In linguistics notation, a direct object is denoted either DO, Od or Od.
