Give it to me x give me it x send it to you x send you it

Nos casos de Reported Speech, normalmente é assim:

"He told me that he was too tired."

Porém, estou com dúvida no uso dos "objects" nas seguintes frases:

"Can you give it to me?" or "Can you give me it?"
"I'll send it to you" or "I'll send you it"

Qual delas é a correta?

Hey Paulinho,

Can you give it to me?" or "Can you give me it?"
"I'll send it to you" or "I'll send you it"


Todas as quatro opções estão corretas. Os verbos give e send são exemplos de verbos que podem ser seguidos de dois objetos. Na maioria dos casos, é possível utilizar as duas estruturas (verb + person + thing ou verb + thing + to + person).

When verbs are followed by two objects, the first object (the indirect object) is usually a person or a group of people and the second object (the direct object) is usually a thing:


Could you send a reply to them as quickly as possible?

They sent her flowers for her birthday.

give someone something: Could you give me that pen?
give something to someone: She gave the flowers to me to hold.

Alguns verbos requerem o uso da preposição for em vez de to:

Here are some of the most common verbs with the for + indirect object formulation:

He poured me a drink.
He poured drinks for everybody in the room.
She found me a two-bedroom flat.
She found suitable accommodation for all the French tourists who arrived last night.
