Direct Object Pronouns Pronombres de Complemento

I
you
he/she
it
we
you
they Pronoun:
me
you
him/her
it
us
you
them In English: Subject:
I
you
he/she/it
we
you (gen.)
they/them Pronombre:
me
te
lo/la
nos
os
los/las En Español Examples: Ejemplos: Samuel throws the ball.

Samuel lanza la pelota. Samuel throws the ball.


Samuel lanza la pelota. Samuel throws the ball. (it)


Samuel la lanza. *The use of "lo" or "la" depends on whether the noun is masculine or feminine. Thomas hugs Michelle. Will this use a masculine or feminine article? Thomas hugs Michelle.


Tómas la abraza. *Another way to insert the direct object pronoun is by attaching it to the infinitive of the verb modifying it. I'm going to buy a soda.


Yo voy a comprar un refresco. becomes... Yo voy a comprarlo. ...or... Yo lo voy a comprar. Now, it's your turn...
