表達完全操控。 

使役動詞,顧名思義,就是要「完全掌控」,其後的結果是完全被操控而立即產生的,缺 乏自主性,因此要用動詞「原形」表「立即動作」;或接形容詞補語,表「立即變化」。 使役動詞後面需要清楚標示「受操控者」及「操控結果」,才能形成完整的語意: 

make + 立即動作 I made him cry. 

                              I made him feel bad. 

make + 立刻變化 I made it flat. 

                              I made it difficult. 

前已說明 make 的結果補語必須是原形動詞,表示兩件事之間有著緊密的一體關係。若補 語是形容詞,則必須是可被操弄、可改變的結果狀態。
