Question on locating the object in korean sentences?
So there is a sentence:
They said this book was free.>> 이 책이 공짜라고 그랬어요.
In the sentence, book is marked with the subject particle (이)
Object is defined as the entity that is acted upon by the verb.
Whats free? The book.
So why does this use a subject particle instead of an object particle?
이 책이 공짜라고 그랬어요.
이 책을 공짜라고 그랬어요.
