    Accusative with the Infinitive

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough share your opinion concerning the following five sentences?

    1. I told him to stay at home.
    2. I should like him to stay at home.
    3. I allowed him to stay at home.
    4. I wanted him to stay at home.
    5. I got him to stay at home.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards.
