presented an award/presented to the rest of the staff/presented with severe pains
Would you be kind enough to share with me your opinion concerning the feasibility of the following sentences?
They presented an award to her.
present (v) = to give
The new employees were presented to the rest of the staff.
present (v) = to introduce
He presented her with a beautiful bouquet of roses.
present (v) = to give a gift
The patient presented with severe pains.
presented with = complained of
Thank you for your efforts.
Re: presented an award/presented to the rest of the staff/presented with severe pains
He presented her with a beautiful bouquet of roses... I'm not convinced about this one, I think it should take a direct object.... no 'with.'
In the last one, it is correct, but presented with does not mean complained of, it means the disease manifested itself with the pains.
