Direct Object Pronouns In Spanish El Complemento Directo
A direct object tells who or what receives the action of the verb. I want that skirt. I bought some shoes. What are the direct objects?
I want that skirt. Skirt is the direct object. I bought some shoes. Shoes are the direct objects.
To avoid repeating a direct object noun, we often replace it with a direct object pronoun. In English the words are: it and them him and her
I want that skirt. What can we replace skirt with? I bought some shoes. What can we replace shoes with?
I want that skirt. I want it. I bought some shoes. I bought them.
In Spanish there are four direct object pronouns: SingularPlural lo (it/him) masc.los (them) masc. la (it/her) fem.las (them) fem. The direct object pronoun must agree in both number and gender with the nouns they replace!!!!!!
Where does the direct object pronoun go? 1. Right before a conjugated verb (the opposite of English)
I want a skirt.Skirt D.O. (Quiero una falda.) Falda D.O. I want it. (La quiero.) falda is singular and feminine which is la. We must put la in front of the conjugated verb.
