Hello everyone,

I have a question relating the structures where the verb like "recommend", "advise", "suggest" and similar introduce the dependent clauses with the subjunctive form employed. Here's an example:

1. "His doctor recommended he be off work for the next 2 weeks to rest."

I wonder if the structure with "for + object" below is preferred to subjunctive in the above sentence, in common conversation:

2. "His doctor recommended for him to be off work for the next 2 weeks to rest"

I'd like if someone would give another possible rephrase of the sentence.

Thank you for the help

No, #2 is no good. You could use this:

His doctor recommended that he should be off work for the next 2 weeks to rest.
