Does the verb "dire" take a direct object or an indirect object ?
22 December 2018
Both, actually. What you say is the direct object and to whom you say it is the indirect one.
Je lui ai dit de bonnes nouvelles. - I told him some good news.
So in this example quoted by you ,"de bonnes nouvelles" is the direct object as it just comes after the verb without any preposition
Am I correct ? Please justify

Yes, "de bonnes nouvelles" is the direct object.
Merci beaucoup Chris pour votre réponse
