give it to me / give me [Spoken English]


Senior Member
Some is holding something which I need

Than I say"give it to me" pointing at the thing(I know it is correct)

But can I just simply say "give me"?

    Only if you are a small child learning English the way all babies learn their native language.

    It needs an object. 'Give me that!' (Some varieties also allow 'Give it me.')

    to give something to someone or to give someone something

    'give' is a ditransitive verb, that is, requires two objects, one direct and one indirect. 'something' is the direct object and 'someone' is the indirect one.
