Presentation Transcript

  1. Direct Object Pronouns • Background information (What you should already know) Subject or Personal Pronouns: Je--I Tu—informal you Il—he or it Elle—she or it On--one Nous--we Vous—formal or plural you Ils—they (masculine) Elles—they (feminine)

  2. Direct Object Pronouns • Me--me • Te--you • Le—him or it • La—her or it • Nous--us • Vous--you • Les--them

  3. Position of Direct Object pronouns: They are usually placed BEFORE the conjugated verb: • Je vois Paul. I see Paul. Je le vois. I see him. Je ne le vois pas. I don’t see him. • Nous avons les livres. We have the books. Nous les avons. We have them. Nous ne les avons pas. We don’t have them. • They are looking for you. Ils te/vous cherchent. Ils ne te/vous cherchent pas. They aren’t looking for you. • George hates me. Georges me déteste. Georges ne me déteste pas!

  4. Wouldn’t you know? Just to confuse us sometimes the direct object pronouns are placed elsewhere! • In an affirmative command (telling someone what to do), place the direct object pronoun AFTER the verb attached by a hyphen. Note: In this case “me” becomes “moi,” and “te” become “toi” just for the sake of sound. Call me. Appelez-moi! Eat it. Mange-le! Let’s look for them. Cherchons-les! Find her. Trouve-la! Help us. Aidez-nous! Forget it. Oubliez-le!

  5. And then in a negative command….. • The word order goes back to the original rule. Here are the same commands written in the negative: • Appelez-moi; ne m’appelez pas! • Mange-le; ne le mange pas! • Cherchons-les; ne les cherchons pas! • Trouve-la; ne la trouve pas! • Aidez-nous; ne nous aidez pas! • Oubliez-le; ne l’oubliez pas!

  6. Finalement……. If an infinitive follows the conjugated verb, put the pronoun BEFORE the infinitive: • Il ne veut pas le lire. He doesn’t want to read it. • Tu peux l’acheter. You can buy it. • Nous voulons le manger maintenant. We want to eat it now. • J’aime l’écouter. I like listening to it.

  7. Essayons! Replace the underlined word with the correct direct object pronoun: • Paul aime la pizza. • Nous regardons latélé. • Lisez le livre! • Je veux conduire la voiture.
