Rule Number 37: The Accusative with Compound Verbs


Some compound verbs (and by some, I mean four) can take two different accusatives, with the second accusative dependent on the prepositional prefix at the beginning of the verb. This rule is commonly seen with verbs compounded with trans, and Caesar especially likes to use this when crossing rivers and such. But be careful, this rule is "some verbs" and "sometimes", since even these verbs don't always follow this rule.
