I'm having some trouble with breaking a causative clause into its parts of sentence. please help. for instance: I have her do my homework.
what i have figured out is: I= subject Have=verb (because when i change the tense have changes and not do) her= indirect object? do my homework= direct object/complement(a main imperative clause on its own) ?
also in instances where the object(if its an object at all) is a third person singular, such as: i made the girl make me coffee. we do not add the present simple S to the verb( in this instance make), why is that? (is it because its a bare clause, and there used to be a to-infinitive there and now only the infinitive remains?). are there more instances where the verb is just an infinitive without an S.
to sum it up: 1)how do i break a causative clause into its parts of sentence. 2)why is the second verb in a causative clause not affected by anything 3)are there more instances where a verb is not affected by tense or subject. please help. thank you all.
