is it correct English to "Get me him", or is it a bit strange?
I heard it in a video of a TV host who is upset. At about 6m 40 seconds, she says, 'Where is Tom? Can someone get me him?'.
I know 'Get him now!' would be correct, but is it correct to put 'me' between 'get' and 'him'? Or is it considered OK in spoken English?
Realize that most times, when we are upset, we aren't paying the most attention to how we are speaking. We'll speak less precisely.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Barb_D - Yes, I realize that. I had not thought about it since I was only trying to figure out if it is correct or not.
