Yes. That's why 'to' after 'somebody' is wrong.

The dictionary example could have been 'a person who thanks somebody ...' but you should know by now that dictionary editors don't include unnecessary words.

Sorry, I should have said 'Why not a person who thanks somebody ...'. :oops:
But did you mean That's why 'to' before 'somebody' is wrong?
