Turn the tables !

Sometimes DS gets confused with English usage and the appropriate use of the word "to" along with the act of speaking...

A few days ago, I overheard DS speaking to DW. He was telling DW, "Amma, I'm suggesting you that you do...". He obviously replaced "telling" with "suggesting"... Having overheard, I then called out to him and told him, that he cannot use "suggesting you", but the appropriate usage is "suggesting to you. There should be a 'to' here except in the usage of 'telling'. Other than 'telling', its always 'saying to you', 'speaking to you', 'suggesting to you'"...etc etc.

DS comeback was, "Appa, what are you suggesting to me ?" :) Smart !!!
