Direct Object Pronouns: Part III
Remember, a direct object receives the action of the verb.
Bill hit the ball.
\u201cBall\u201d receives the action of the verb \u201chit.\u201d
Sherry reads the book.
\u201cBook\u201d receives the action of the verb \u201creads.\u201d
And, the direct object can also be a person.
Sherry hit Bill. (DO=Bill)
Also, remember that the direct object answers the question \u201cwhat?\u201d or \u201cwhom?\u201d with
regard to what the subject of the sentence is doing.
Bill hit the ball.
Bill hit what? The ball.
Sherry hit Bill.
Sherry hit whom? Bill.
Often, it is desirable to replace the name of the direct object with a pronoun.
Example 1:
Paul bought the \ufb02owers. He took the \ufb02owers home and gave the \ufb02owers to his wife.
Example 2:
Paul bought the \ufb02owers. He took them home and gave them to his wife.
When the pronoun replaces the name of the direct object, use the following pronouns:

me(me)
te(you-familiar)
lo, la (him, her, it, you-formal)

nos(us)
os(you-all-familiar)
los, las (them, you-all-formal)

When a sentence has two verbs, the \ufb01rst verb is conjugated and the second verb remains
in the in\ufb01nitive form.

poder................................................................. to be able
pagar................................................................. to pay
Puedo pagar diez pesos...................................... I am able to pay 10 pesos.
preferir............................................................... to prefer
hablar................................................................ to speak
Elena pre\ufb01ere hablar espa\u00f1ol.............................. Elena prefers to speak Spanish.
