    grammar: verbs

    I'm working on ditransitive verbs and I've found out a trouble concerning the following snetences: benevolence in the students was related to parental appreciation of universalism, and vice versa; Age was not correlated with Multicultural personality dimensions, Shall I consider was related and was not correlated as ditransitive or intensive? These examples are extracted from the Results section of Academic Research Articles. Shall I consider the verbs as intensive on the basis that they are mere descriptions of the results (stipulated in Tables) or shall I consider them as ditransitive on the basis that researchers go through a cognitive process whereby they analyze variable and transform statistics into these conclusions, thus showing their agency (THEY relate A with B)? Thank you

    Re: grammar: verbs

    The verbs you are asking about are, once again, not ditransitive.

    I think that, before you think about passive constructions, youshould look at active constructions. Have a look at this: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/internet-grammar/function/ditr.htm

    I see that you have not asked a question about ditransitive verb in this forum. You asked the same question in another forum (https://www.englishforums.com/Englis...jxqbv/post.htm). Please don't ask the same question in different forums without at least providing a link. you waste the time of people who respond in one forum only to find that the question has already been answered in another.
