Can someone explain why sometimes you make a "direct object" do something and other times an "indirect object"? Examples:
Je le fais asseoir à côté de moi (direct object) - I make him sit next to me
Je lui fais sortir la poubelle (indirect) - I make him take out the garbage
Elle lui fait cueillir les fleurs (indirect) - She makes him pick the flowers
There has to be a unifying rule that explains this distinction. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
I think I found the answer.
