Hola. Me interesan acepciones de verbos frasales para esta sencilla frase. Estamos estudiando cómo se convierten los reflexivos españoles al inglés (lenguaje común, por favor). Mil gracias por anticipado desde Medellín.

Una pregunta: lo llamó / la llamó, no es un verbo reflexivo, creo. O sea: lo/la si no me equivoco son objeto directo del verbo llamar. ¿No es esto así?
