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."
