    prove you it

    We usually say "I値l prove it to you."
    Can we say "I値l prove you it." or "I値l prove it you.'?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Cool Re: prove you it

    Not a teacher, but I'm afraid that it doesn't sound good to me

    Thank you.
    Sorry to say I'm still confused cos OALD says the word "prove" can have two objects---VNN.

    Re: prove you it

    Norwolf, perhaps you are thinking of "I'll prove it to you".

    Hi, RonBee.
    I just woder if "I'll prove it to you", "I'll prove it you" and "I'll prove you it" mean the same thing, and if they are grammatically correct.

    I recognize only one of those three as being English sentences.
    A: I can do it.
    B: I don't think you can.
    A: Yes, I can. I'll prove it to you.
