Each time you open a textbook, you should immediately determine how an author signals to readers that a particular word or term is significant.
[Source: Reading for Results Ninth Edition by Laraine Flemming]
I had been taught the structure "signal to somebody to do something," but I haven't thus far seen the structure "signal to somebody that~."
So, I'd like to know if the structure "signal to somebody that~" is grammatical.
Thank you in advance for your help.
