Direct Objects Diagram each part of these English sentences: I want that skirt. I bought some shoes. What is the subject, the verb, the direct object?
Direct Object Pronouns Direct object pronouns take the place of the direct object in a sentence. For example:
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.
Direct Object Pronouns (English) me you him, her, it us them
Direct Object Pronouns (Spanish) me(me) te(you) lo(him, it or Ud.) la (her, it or Ud.) nos(us) los (them, you all) las (them, you all)
Placement of Direct Object Pronouns Direct Object Pronouns, me, te, lo, la, nos, los and las are placed either before a conjugated verb or attached to the end of an infinitive.
Before the Conjugated Verb: Cuándo compraste la falda? La compré hace cinco días.
Before the Conjugated Verb Isabel, tienes mi suéter? No, no lo tengo.
Before the Conjugated Verb Compras esos pantalones? No, no los compro.
Before the verb or after the infinitive: Before the verb: Quieres comprar esa falda? Sí, la quiero comprar. After the infinitive: Quieres comprar esa falda? Si, quiero comprarla.
Direct Object Pronouns When the pronoun replaces both a masculine and a feminine direct object noun, we use los. For example:
Direct Object Pronouns Cuándo compraste la falda y el vestido? Los compré el sábado.
