Indirect objects in Spanish
  • Like English, the Spanish indirect object is identified the same way.

indirect objects and their pronouns
Indirect Objects and Their Pronouns
  • In English we can use pronouns to take place of the noun. The pronoun goes after the verb.

- Sarah gave the book to him.

“Him” takes place of the person receiving the book.

  • In Spanish we can use pronouns also to replace the indirect object. The pronouns go before the verb.

- Miguel te da el libro.

“Te” takes place of “you” which is the person receiving the book.

“LE AND LES”The IO pronouns le and les present a special problem because they are ambiguous. That is, they can stand for different things.leto (for) himto (for) herto (for) you-formallesto (for) themto (for) you-all-formal

slide8

“Le and LesThe following sentences, while grammatically correct, are ambiguous:Ella le escribeunacarta.Ella les escribeunacarta.Out of context, there is no way we can know the meaning.Ella le escribeunacarta.She writes him a letter.She writes her a letter.She writes you (formal) a letter.Ella les escribeunacarta.She writes them a letter.She writes you-all (formal) a letter.

slide9

“Le and Les”Since le and les can mean more than one thing, a prepositional phrase is often added to remove the ambiguity.Ella le escribea Juanunacarta.Ella le escribea suhermanaunacarta.Ella le escribea ustedunacarta.Ella les escribea sus padresunacarta.Ella les escribea ustedesunacarta.

slide10

Sometimes a prepositional phrase is added not for clarity, but rather for emphasis.Juan me da a mí el dinero.John givesmethe money.(emphasizing that the money is given to me and not to someone else)Juan te da a ti el dinero.John givesyouthe money. (emphasis on you)There is no ambiguity in the following sentence. It can only mean one thing.Juan me da el dinero.John gives me the money.The addition of a prepositional phrase merely adds emphasis.Juan me da a mí el dinero.John givesmethe money.
