Assunto:  Re: Why is this sentence correct?
 
Mensagem:  &"Yesterday I had my cleaning lady *DO* all beds in the house.&" Two sentences: The first, &"Yesterday I had my cleaning lady&", is simple past. The ending sentence, &"Do all beds in the house&" is emphatic. &"Do&" 'talks', 'shouts' to the second person, the cleaning lady. There is a 'hidden' colon after the word &"lady&" as follow: &"Yesterday I had my cleaning lady: do all beds in the house.&"
