Analysis Key

1. "My dear master [DirA], *you* do not despair." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

2. "*You* Dress yourself (DO), my master [DirA], |and *you* [#1] come out." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

3. "*You* Take it (DO), dear Avenant [DirA]." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

4. "*You* Fill this flask (DO) {with my blood} | and *you* carry it (DO) {to the Princess}." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

5. "*You* Go {to the King}, my master [#2], | and *you* tell him (IO) {of my misfortune}." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

6. "*You* Give me (IO) your flask (DO)." | ["Princess Goldenhair"]

7. *You* Please [#3] open the door (DO). | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

8. "*You* Do not forget to say 'Good-morning' [#4]." | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

9. "*You* Come, Red Riding Hood [DirA]: | *you* take these (DO) {to your grandmother}." | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

10. "*You* Take this bucket (DO), dear [DirA]: | yesterday I boiled some

meat (DO) {in this water}, | now *you* pour it (DO) {into the stone trough}." | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

1. "You" does not have to be added here. We could consider these verbs as compounded, and thus both taking the same subject.
2. "Master" is an appositive to "King."
3. "Please" can be considered simply as an adverb. It is a reduced form of "If it please you, ..."
4. "Good-morning" (in single quotes because it is itself within a quotation) is the direct object of the verbal (infinitive) "to say." The infinitive phrase functions as the direct object of "Do forget." Until they get to verbals, I would accept "do forget to say" as the finite verb phrase, which would make "Good-morning" its direct object.
