a: Direct object ~
b: accusative case
What: "If you think in terms of formal grammar, it might be helpful to point out that in "I wrote my mother a letter, " letter is the direct object (what you wrote) and mother is the indirect object (to whom you wrote). The direct object is like the accusative case, and the indirect object is the dative."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
