Object Pronouns

Me, te, nos


Two Types of Object Pronouns

  • There are two types of object pronouns: Direct and indirect

  • Direct Object Pronouns (DOPNs) answer the question “Who or what is receiving the action of the verb?”

  • Indirect Object Pronouns (IDOPNs) answer the question "To whom?" or "For whom?" the action of the verb is performed. It tells us where the DOPN is going.


Example

  • The doctor writes me a prescription.

verb

Indirect object

Subject

Direct object

  • What does he write?

  • For whom does he write the prescription? Where is the prescription going?

Me

To Me

  • In Spanish this sentence would be:

  • El medico me escribeunareceta


Indirect Object Pronounsanswer the question "To whom?" or "For whom?"

  • (to/ for) me = me (pronounced “may”)

  • (to/ for) you = te

  • (to/ for) him, her, it, you formal = le

  • (to/ for) us = nos

  • (to/ for) them, you all = les
