Realidades 2 Direct Object Pronouns

2 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?

3 Direct Objects A direct object tells who or what receives the action of the verb. To avoid repeating a direct object noun, you can replace it with a direct object pronoun (DOP). In English, him, her and it are examples of direct object pronouns.

4 Direct Object Pronouns
Direct object pronouns take the place of the direct object in a sentence. For example:

5 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.”

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

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 Direct Objects Direct objects have the same gender (masc. / fem.) and number (sing. / pl.) as the nouns they replace.

9 Placement of Direct Object Pronouns (DOPs)
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.

10 Before the Conjugated Verb:
¿Cuándo compraste la falda? When did you buy the skirt? La compré hace cinco días. I bought it five days ago.

11 Before the Conjugated Verb
Isabel, ¿ tienes mi suéter? Isabel, do you have my sweater? No, no lo tengo. No, I don’t have it.

12 Before the Conjugated Verb
¿ Compraste esos pantalones? Did you buy those pants? No, no los compré. No, I didn’t buy them.

13 Before the verb or attached to the infinitive:
¿ Quieres comprar esa falda? Sí, la quiero comprar. Attached to the infinitive: Si, quiero comprarla.

14 Direct Object Pronouns
When the pronoun replaces both a masculine and a feminine direct object noun, we use los. For example:

15 Direct Object Pronouns
¿ Cuándo compraste la falda y el vestido? When did you buy the skirt and dress? Los compré el sábado. I bought them on Saturday.
