why "memasak" is not acceptable here and I have to use "memasakkan"? Does it have anything to do with the fact that there is specified in the sentence to whom she cooks?
So word order is "Subject Verb Direct-Object Indirect-Object"? I just want to be sure.
Ibu memasakkan ayam goreng untuk kami = Mother cooks fried chicken for us
Surely memasak on its own also works in this sentence?
