Chapter Verb + verb constructions


This construction is especially used with the verbs let, make and have.

As for these structures, we use a noun and a pronoun between the two verbs.
- Let : They let me see my daughter.
- Make : My mother made me eat the soup.
- Have : I have Nelly close the window.

Other verbs can also be used without « to » between the two verbs :
Help me carry this bag.
The construction « Help + to » is possible, but it is too formal: Help me to carry this bag.
