Indirect Objective Complement
for example: They made David captain.
the "captain" above is objective complement for David(object) and its type is noun.
for example: They paid David $4000.
the "David" above is indirect object and its type is noun & no objective complement.
Is there objective complement for indirect object. if so, could you give me an example.
Re: Indirect Objective Complement
Yes, although comparatively rare - and hence seldom discussed in grammar books - there is such a thing as an indirect object complement, e.g. the infinitive phrase of
They paid David 4,000 dollars to swim the Atlantic.
which functions as complement to IO 'David'.
