Where do you put the object pronoun in French? Object pronouns are those tricky little words in sentences that replace nouns affected by verbs. There are two types: Direct object pronouns (pronoms objets directs) replace the people or things that receive the action of the verb in a sentence. Indirect object pronouns (pronoms objets indirects) replace the people in a sentence to/for whom the action of the verb occurs.
Examples of Direct J'ai dit la vérité. / Je l'ai dite. I told the truth. / I told it. Tu connais Jean et Pierre. / Tu les connais. You know Jean and Pierre. / You know them. J'ai acheté le livre. / Je l'ai acheté. I bought the book. /I bought it.
Examples of Indirect Je lui ai donné un livre I gave him/her a book. Je leur donne des chocolats. J’allais lui parler. I was going to talk to him.
