Homework Help: English - Infinitive phrases

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, December 9, 2011 at 1:00pm.

Consider the two sentences:

His mother wanted him to study more.
She made him study more.

In the first, we have an infinitive phrase acting as a direct object, with "him" as the subject of the infinitive.

How about the second sentence? Is that also an infinitive phrase, with an implied "to"? Or is that some other construct?

I'm thinking of how to diagram it.
