Grammar terms and writing
The term object refers to a noun or pronoun that comes after the verb, in an active clause.
Many verbs can be followed by two objects – an indirect object and a direct object. The indirect object usually refers to a person and the direct object usually refers to a thing. In the sentence Ann gave me a watch, the indirect object is me, and the direct object is a watch.
