1 Direct Object Pronouns

2 Direct Objects Dissect the sentences! I want that skirt.
I bought some shoes. What is the subject, the verb, the direct object?

3 Direct Object Pronouns
Instead of saying, “I want that skirt,” you can say, “I want it.” The word “it” takes the place of the word “skirt.”

4 Direct Object Pronouns
Direct object pronouns take the place of the direct object noun in a sentence. To find the D.O. go to the verb and ask What? (or who?)

5 Direct Object Pronouns
How to find the Direct Object: I want to eat tacos. What do I want to eat? (I want to eat) Tacos Direct Object = Tacos DO Pronoun (to replace tacos)= them

6 Direct Object Pronouns (English)
me you him, her, it us y’all them

7 Direct Object Pronouns (Spanish)
me (me) te (you) lo (him or it) la (her or it) nos (us) os (you all inf.) los (them, you all) las (them, you all)

8 Placement of Direct Object Pronouns
Direct Object Pronouns, me, te, lo, la, os, nos, los and las are placed either : before a conjugated verb or attached to the end of an infinitive.

9 Before the Conjugated Verb:
¿Cuándo compras la camisa nueva? La compro cuando tengo dinero.

10 Before the Conjugated Verb
Isabel, ¿tienes mi suéter? Do you have my sweater? No, no lo tengo. No I don’t have it. ¿Compras esos pantalones? Are you buying those pants? No, no los compro. No, I’m not buying them.

11 Before the conjugated verb or after the infinitive:
Q: ¿ Quieres comprar esa camiseta? Do you want to buy that t-shirt? A: Before the verb: Sí, la quiero comprar. (Yes, I want to buy it) A: After the infinitive: Sí, quiero comprarla.

12 Direct Object Pronouns
When the pronoun replaces both a masculine and a feminine direct object noun, we use los. ¿Cuándo compras la falda y el vestido? Los compro el sábado.
