Hello Dr.Hariri. I have a question:
In this sentence ( but I will toss my head and refuse them every one. ), are both them and everyone object?
Hi Armaghan. Thanks for asking me questions.
In this sentence, ‘them’ is a pronoun functioning as the object that refers to ‘young fellows’, and ‘every one’ is used to emphasize all the individual young fellows. This is because a sentence cannot have 2 objects referring to ONE entity. Therefore, ‘every one’ is just used to place emphasis on ‘every one’ of the young fellows or ‘them’.
