Objective in Apposition




Objective in Apposition :


A substantive in apposition with an objective is itself in the objective case.

2. Tom gave his friend John a book. [Apposition with the indirect object friend.]

3. He lives with Andrews the blacksmith. [Apposition with the object of the preposition with.]

This rule follows from the general principle that an appositive is in the same case as the substantive to which it is attached.
