Hello,

What is correct? ‘Send it to me’ or ‘send it me’

Thanks.

Hello,

According to Longman, there are the following verb patterns:

Quote:
send something to somebody/something
I'll send a copy to you.

send somebody something
I sent her an email yesterday.
Radio signals were sent into deep space.


But there is no such pattern as “send something someone”.

So, it is quite different from “write to someone” vs. “write someone”, where there is a difference between British and American English.

Quote:
write to
I've written to my MP, and to the city council.

write somebody American English
Chris hasn't written me for a long time.
I wrote her several letters, but she didn't reply.



Cheers!

Nikita
