    one dilemma

    I listened to him all day.

    Can anyone break down this finite clause for me?

    Particularly, which of the words is the object complement. Is it: "to", "to him" or "him"?

    Thank you

    sorry, it was my sort of misunderstanding... i was not very attentive while reading the question. sorry once again. i found in michael swan's 'practical english usage', oxford univ. press - 'him' is the object in such cases
