2 Reviewing Direct Object Pronouns On previous chapters we have learned about Direct Object Pronouns.They are: Lo, La, Los, Las, Me, Te, NosThey substitute the direct object (NOT THE SUBJECT) on a sentence.They always come BEFORE the verb unless there are two verbs together in the sentence.They answer the question “What?” or “Who”.Ex: Maria compra la camiseta/Maria la compra.Frida colecciona los animales de peluche/ Frida los colecciona.Marcos llama a Carlos y yo. / Marcos nos llama.
3 Indirect Object Pronouns In English …The Indirect Object follows the verb just as a Direct Object does. But the function of an Indirect Object is different. Instead of being the object of the action of the verb as a Direct Object is, the Indirect Object is the person or thing to whom or for whom the action is performed- I write a letter (direct object) to my friend (indirect object)- I bought a sweater (direct object) for Jennifer (indirect object)- She borrowed a CD (direct object) from me (indirect object)
4 Continuing… Let's look at an example: I give a ticket to the crazed driver.Let's take a look at the components of the sentence:Ithe subject (the person for whom we conjugate the verb)givethe verb [transitive] (transfers action to an object -requires an object)a ticketdirect object (receives the action of TO GIVE) - it's what is given.(to) the crazed driverthe indirect object (this is to whom the ticket is given)Now, let’s substitute the indirect object with a pronoun:I give him a ticket
5 In Spanish …Like in English an IOP tells to whom or for whom an action is performed. They are used to replace or accompany an indirect object noun. They are:Let’s look at some examples:- Mi abuela no me permitia comer galletas para el almuerzo.- Su mamá siempre le daba regalos (a Juanito).- Yo les compraba regalos (a los niños).- Nos enviaba cartas todos los veranos.ME (to / for) meNOS (to/for) usTE (to/for) youLE (to/for) him, her , youLES (to/for) them, you all
