los amo

What is the meaning of this. amo looks like a conjugated form of amor, but amor is a noun, and the los indicates that the amo is a noun. I am just starting to learn Spanish.

It´s not les amo?

That would be "leísmo" (more common in Spain). "Amar" is transitive, and the person you love is the direct object, so in theory it should be "los".

HI Dayton, welcome to this forum!

WE normally and often put the pronoun before the verb.

so this would be:

Yo amo a ellos/Ustedes

Amo a ellos/Ustedes.....los amo

It´s not les amo'

You're confusing the noun 'amor' with the verb 'amar'. It is the verb that is used in 'los amo'.

Wrong!

los = to them
amo = I love

"los" is a pronoun"; "amo" is a verb.
