when can i use this structure?
consider the following sentence:
1)i elected him president
S+ V group + object + nominal object complement
is any transitive verb can be used in this structure?
furthermore,the sentence: i elect him as a president
S+V group + object+prepositional object(as a Recipient adverbial)
is there any difference between sentence 1)?
