Object pronouns n the middle of sentences
Are these sentences grammatically correct? Am I allowed to use the object pronouns in the middle of these sentences: * Tell him to be quiet. * The batter hit a ball that sent him (the fielder) racing towards the wall. * She showed them a picture of him skiing. * He invites her to accompany them. * He called her by name. * He gave her an angry look.
A pronoun replaces a noun.
The batter hit the ball toward Jack.
He hit the ball toward Jack.
The batter hit it toward Jack.
The batter hit the ball toward me.
As an object, a noun (or a pronoun) can be a direct or indirect object. If there is an indirect object, the direct object will be in the middle of the sentence - after the subject and verb, and before the indirect object.
Jack invites Jill to accompany the group.
He invites her to accompany them.
