verb + object + clause

Point 12 in the category of VERBS/patterns is defined:

verbs, typically reporting verbs, followed by a noun or pronoun as the indirect object and a clause with or without ‘that’, as the direct object.

*Note some of our search results are not indirect objects.  However, the A2 complexity is still there with relative clauses.
