I would like to know whether the sentence right below is correct, and if not, how it can be corrected. I learnt and know that the preposition to doesn't go with the verb ask as in the pattern ask something to a person.
May I suggest or ask something to you?
That sentence is in an attempt to combine the two things(suggest something to you, ask something of you), in order to shorten the time of asking as the situation is busy, and you is deliberately mentioned as an emphasis not to be heard lightly. Let's say, right after a meeting ends, I catch the person and ask that individually before he or she leaves.
