After I learn the French causative structure, i.e. faire+infinitif, I am confused a little, for the form of the verb is indefinitive in both active and passive meaning, so how can one distinguish them apart? 1. subject+faire+infinitive+the logical subject of this infinitive. 2. subject+faire+infinitive+the direct object of this infinitive. For example, if one says, which may not be correct, «il fait manger le cochon», then does it mean 1. He has the pig eaten (by someone). or 2. He makes the pig eat. Strange question, but I am just curious.
