ASK A QUESTION Object Pronoun Question. Podéis auydarme?
In a simple sentence the order is >> [Indirect Object Pronoun]-[Direct Object Pronoun]-[Verb]. Si?
Example: Give[Verb] it[Direct] to her[INDIRECT] >>> Se[Indirect] lo[Direct] da[Verb].
My question is how does this work with other verbs in the sentence.
Example: Can[Verb] you give[Verb] it[Direct] to her[Indirect]? Have you told it to him?
Any help very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Can you give it to her?
=¿Se lo puedes dar (a ella)?
Have you told it to him?
=¿Ya se lo has dicho (a él)?
So basically the Direct and Indirect Objects will always go before the verb, and in some cases they can be attached to the end of the infinitive, and especially command forms they go at the end.
Buy me it! (Buy it for me!)
"buy, cook and eat it with her" be "con se lo compra, cocinar y comer"
There are 2 ways to express that statement, it's all based on context since I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say.
"Compra, cocina, y cómelo con ella." = Buy, cook, and eat it with her.
"Cómpralo, cócinalo, y cómelo con ella." Buy it, cook it, and eat it with her.
Remember that indirect pronouns can mean to someone (or in some cases for someone.)
With someone uses : Conmigo (with me) Contigo (with you) Con él/ella (with him/her) And in some cases: consigo. (Mi padre trajo todo el dinero consigo. = My dad brought all of the money with him/himself)
For "Can you give it to her" I believe you could use "¿Puedes darselo a ella?". This incorporates the indirect and direct pronouns, and recignizes the common practice of changing "le" to "se" when it is combined with "lo". "Selo" instead to "lelo".
I hope I'm not too far afield on this - pretty sure anyway.
