comment Which one is more appropriate to use: “send you” or “send to you”?
I agree with Andy F. My wife grew up in northern England and says, for example, "I'll give it you" rather than "I'll give it to you", which is standard usage in southern England.

comment What is the origin of the 'do' construction?
