Direct Object Pronoun Agreement French

Often, there are several pronouns (usually no more than two) in a single sentence. The rules for placing pronouns are as follows: If we have a direct object pronoun and an indirect object pronoun, we need to think carefully about the order in which we introduced them. “I, `te`, `we` and `you` will come before `the`, `la` and `les`, but `he` and `their` must come after `the`, `la` or `les`: the pronoun can replace the object of the preposition of, including the expressions of the crowd. The pronouns of singular direct objects of the third person (the and the) have the same sex as the name to which they refer: See direct object pronouns and indirect pronouns of objects, and seeFlexives – Present tense and Past participle – Agreement for more information. The previous participant of the compound past will always reflect the gender and number of previous direct objects (see the object`s pronouns). A direct object is a name that receives the action of a verb, z.B. the word “cookie” in the phrase “I eat the cookie.” He usually answers the question “What?” or “Who?” (“What do I eat? The cookie. A direct object pronoun replaces the direct object if it is already implied. So instead of “I eat the cookie,” you could just say, “I`m eating it.” 3. If there are several verbs in a clause, object pronouns usually precede the last verb in the sequence: Note that previous entries never correspond to indirect pronouns of an indirect object or object.

See Past participle – agreement. Like the pronouns of direct objects, they precede the verb: in the first example, the of sees it in silence. In the second, the la of the fact/makes it refers to the onion pie. The two examples show a different rule that applies to all pronouns of individual direct objects (me, te, le and la): if the verb that comes after the pronoun begins with a silent vowel or h, the e or a pronoun is abandoned and replaced by an apostrophe (it is called elition). That is why you have the bid instead of the bid, hear it instead of hear it, and call you instead of you. The only other delicate aspect of the pronouns of French direct objects occurs in the past (composed past). If you have a singular female, multiural female or male direct object pronouns before a verb in the compound past, you must ensure that past participation corresponds in number and sex with the name to which you refer: a previous direct object does not necessarily appear as a pronoun just before the verbal clause. If the compound past is used in a relative clause, the modified name could be an earlier direct object (see relative pronouns). The pronoun can also replace the object of a series of prepositions indicating placement in space or movement: in the case of a reflexive/reciprocal verb, the indirect object pronoun reflects the shape of the subject: most indirect objects can be replaced by an indirect pronoun (me, te, se, him, us, you, theirs, y). It is used as a third-person prognosis to replace abstract things or situations. (see Y and en.) It is only used with reflectives and reciprocity.

Indirect object pronouns predict the verb in all sentences, with the exception of affirmative imperatives. This, too, applies only to pronouns of individual direct objects. For plural pronouns, just think of the agreement of numbers. In the following examples, they refer to both the male plural and the female plural fries, and it does not change in front of a verb beginning with a vowel: They were sold to us. – Someone sold them to us. (Participants related to the past here correspond to the direct object `the`) Gently! If the subject is indirectly the subject of a reflexive sentence, there is no agreement. But the verbs have to be approved in a very specific construction: the participatory past must agree with the direct object if the verb moves forward.
