Can anybody, please, give me a complete list of verbs which take direct and indirect objects, such as: Mom cooks me fish for dinner all the time?

I would think that the list is endless:

Mom cooks me fish.
Mom broils me fish.
Mom bakes me fish.
Mom fries me fish.
Mom buys me fish.
Mom steals me fish.
Mom catches me fish.
Mom sells me fish.
Mom finds me fish.
Mom sends me fish.
Mom grabs me fish.
Mom throws me fish.
Mom tosses me fish.
Mom draws me fish.
Mom sketches me fish.
Mom paints me fish.
Mom sculpts me fish.

etc.

I don't think a complete list exists-- or even a partial one.

Rather than a list of verbs which take both d.o. and ind. o. perhaps an understanding of the concept is better. The direct object is who or what receives the action of the verb. The indirect is who or what receives the direct object.

He gave me the book.

I showed her the way.

They always told us the truth.

This is perhaps a bit simplistic, but it's a good, basic place to start. Remember that the indirect object needn't necessarily be a pronoun. 'He told John a lie.

Nice and sharp explanation,Ethanw.
Thank you all for the replies. It helps a lot.
Hi

I need a list of Verbs that don't follow by a proposition such as: Attend in attend meeting, or locate downtown. They don't need "IN" to follow them.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Good luck with your search. Try being polite and somebody may give you a clue as to where to look.

You may want to distinguish between sentences like "Mom buys me fish." benefactive (Mom buys fish for me.) and "Mom throws me fish." (Mom throws fish to me.)
