An object is the part of a sentence that. It is related to the subject and verb of the sentence and represents the noun on which the action is taking place by the subject.

Today I will discuss about the less known part of a sentence that is the double object.

Double object is similar to the object of the sentence but it is not the same thing.

Double Object:

When the verb of a sentence is playing the role of both the direct object and the indirect object it is termed as double object.


I gave the girl her ball.

In the above sentence example, the girl is the direct object whereas her ball is the indirect object. As both the direct and indirect objects of the sentences are represented by the single verb gave, it is known as double object.
