What does the "le" or "la" mean at the end of a verb?
I was wondering why sometimes you see "le" or "la" at the end of a verb. For example, why is it "Quién podrá abrirle la puerta"? Another example is "Nosotros no pudimos ir a buscarla. I understand the reflexive verbs and why you say "me levanto" and "se acuesta", but is there a difference between putting it at the end from putting it at the front?
Can you tell him that I will be late?
¿Puedes decirle que voy a llegar tarde?
¿Quién podrá abrirle la puerta?
Who will be able to open the door to her?
Nosotros no pudimos ir a buscarla.
We couldn't go to look for her.
So as you see it can be either direct object or indirect object of the sentence.
