V n to-inf

Structure information: Verb with two Objects

Both the noun group and the to-infinitive clause are Objects. This structure has a passive, with the pattern be V-ed to-inf. The to-infinitive clause is the Object. The fact that you can say I was nagged to cut my hair shows that me and to cut my hair are two grammatical units. Phrasal verb patterns are the same, except that there is also a particle, P. The first Object comes either between the verb and the particle, or after the particle. When this Object comes after the particle, it cannot be a personal pronoun. You say
Their mother brought them up to tell the truth
or
Their mother brought her kids up to tell the truth
but you do not say Ther mother brought up them to tell the truth.
