I have a question about the placements of objects and targets in sentences. I am not sure if I understand the difference between "target" and "object". I have tried search for it, but they both seem to be; "the word or phrase which the verb is referring to".
In short my questions are:
What are the differences between a target and an object (if there is any)?
In the sentence "警察那天不停地在警察局对他审问了几个小时 (The police kept him in the police station for a few hours that day)", why isn't "对他(to him)" an object and placed after the verb, since the chinese language uses Subject-Verb-Object structure?
If possible, can someone give me an example where both a target and an object is placed in the same sentence, and describe why it should be this way?
In the picture that I have posted below, you can see that the targets are placed before the verb. They have not included any place for the object, so where should it go? Or is the target an object? I'm confused! I hope someone can explain :)
