He seemed to know that the teacher was planning to resign.
He is the subject,and seemed is the verb , and to know is the object. Is this correct?
And what about the clause "that the teacher was planning to resign."
I understand it is a object behind the transitive verb "know",
but then the structure would be S V O O.
Or is the entire "to know that the teacher was planning to resign" an object,making it S V O?
I appreciate your telling me this.
A similar question confuses me,
I:subject, appreciate:verb , your telling:object,
what about "me" and "this", it seems like an S V O O O structure, but such pattern doesn't exit in grammar.
Or is the "your telling me this" the object of the verb "appreciate"?
And how can the " your telling me this" be grammatically explained. Is it an object comprised of " Gerund verb + two objects" ?
