I have seen the word abase in dictionary and it has been mentioned that abase should be used with only object. I do not know what that mean?
Can some one give me example for how abase is used with object and not used with object. Thank you
We don't look at it that way. "Lara" is an object but not an object of the verb "speak". It is either the object of the preposition "about" or the object of the prepositional verb "speak about".
When I answered your first post, I didn't think carefully about "speak". It is sometimes used with an object. The following is from our dictionary. I typed the word "speak" in the search box at the top of this page and used the icon at the far right of the box to bring up the dictionary entry in a new browser tab.
to say words: He spoke a few words.
to use a language: We tried to speak Russian.
