I want you to go

Hello all!
I think I pretty much grasp the use of soɾɛl as described in IGG for sentences like "I want to sing a song".
What about "I want you to go" or, if we rephrase it, "I want that you go"?
Alternatively, what if you don't want an action, but an object? ("I want an apple") Does soɾɛl take the person affix then?

soɾɛl is used for objects, as stated in the lexicon of the Project Notes. It would only take the person affix if you didn't include a subject in the sentence. 

I think for sentences like "I want you to go" you would use the verb kɔli and you would translate the sentence "want I; go you".
