Indirect Object or Prepositional Phrase?
In the sentence "I will return this to the store" is "to the store" acting as an indirect object or a prepositional phrase? If a prepositional phrase, how is it different from "I will return this to Tom" (clearly an indirect object)?
I will return this to the store. is a prepositional phrase. In the phrase, "to the store", to is a preposition, the is an adjective and store is an object of the preposition "to".
I will return this to Tom. I will return this to "Whom"? So "Tom" is an indirect object in this sentence.
