Direct Object Pronouns Capítulo 6-2
Direct Object Pronouns A direct object answers who or what receives the action of the verb. Comprendo la pregunta. I understand what?... the question (la pregunta)
Direct Object Pronouns To avoid repeating a direct object, we often replace it with “it” in English. Do you understand the question? Yes, I understand it.
Direct Object Pronouns Spanish works the same way. The direct object pronouns are:
Singular Plural Lo him/it Los them La her/it Las them
Direct Object Pronouns Direct object pronouns can refer to people or things. They agree in gender and number with the nouns they replace.
For example If Tomas were to be referred to as him, lo would be the pronoun we would use. Tomas = masc sing. Masc. singular d.o. pronoun = lo
For example If eggs were to be referred to as them, we would choose los. Los huevos = Masculine plural Los = Masculine plural pronoun
Direct Object Pronouns A direct object pronoun is placed just before the conjugated verb. ¿Comes el pollo? - Sí lo como. ¿Quieres leche? - Sí la quiero.
