Direct Object Pronouns

  • Instead of saying:

    Tout le monde aime Robert Pattinson

    the direct object is replaced by a direct object pronoun (DOP). Therefore, you would say:

    Tout le monde l’aime.

    You would have an “l’” because “aime” starts with the vowel, “a”.

    Here are the DOPs that replace the direct object:
