    Quick question - 'beckoned'

    Is it:

    'They beckoned him'

    or

    'They beckoned to him'

    ??

    No matter which one I put, I keep convincing myself it's the other one.

    Is 'to him' implied, if I say 'They beckoned.'

    I think simplest is: 'They beckoned.'

    'They beckoned to him,' may be correct, but the 'to him is not needed. I think 'They beckoned him' is flat out wrong. (I think I am confusing beckon with summon.)
