Re: Ordering food

 If I wish to translate "(Subject) causes (object) to (verb) (other 
 object)," like in "The officer caused the guard to hit the captain.", I 
 do it like "(other object) with no t5 suffix (object) (verb)+moH 
 (subject)", so my above sentence would be "HoD 'avwI' qIpmoH yaS" (In 
 TKD it says if there are other nouns in a sentence they go before the 
 direct object.) >>

How do I know that this does not mean "The officer caused the captain's guard
to hit.....?"
