comment sentence pattern clarification
Yes, but the pattern is still such even with re-wording. In both cases though, the "parents" is the indirect object.

revised Term for homophones that have opposite meanings?
Whole and hole do not have opposite definitions, but it can be argued that they can have opposite meanings. "Meaning" is a better word to use here.

comment “Heard of anything” or “heard anything”
Did you hear John's new movie isn't necessarily incorrect. You could be asking if they heard the movie (i.e.heard the sounds the movie produced). It'd be a weird question, but not incorrect.

comment “Make something out of” or “Make something with”?
@FumbleFingers ohh I see your point. I think that is a regional thing. "Make into" is definitely acceptable from my understanding of English (American).

comment “Make something out of” or “Make something with”?
@BillFranke I absolutely abhor when that happens. Especially at times like this, when the alternate answer is perfectly valid. Tests should assess your knowledge of English, not your knowledge of what was covered in lecture last week. Sounds like a really lousy quiz.
