Pronouns order in a sentence

Hello again smile

I have this sentence from my beloved Spanish course:
No te lo voy a perdonar nunca.

Which I believe means: I'm never going to forgive you.

I've seen this cool trick in gerundio fueled sentences as well as with single pronouns - that we can connect the pronoun to the end of a verb. Will those sentences be correct (or maybe bad, or just ok yet quite weird sounding):

a) No voy a perdonartelo nunca.
b) No te voy a perdonarlo nunca.

Thanks in advance smile

So basically the rule is I can glue pronouns yet I have to glue all of them not a single one? smile and give the verb an accent according to the accenting rules.

That's correct: it is either all or none.

Jakup, you will get a more advanced answer on this from Lazarus, our grammar expert.
In any case, this is basically it. I don't know if you read Spanish really well, if that is to, check the rules here:

Perdonátelo is "esdrújula" and must have a written accent.

Have you seen the thread about writing accents?

Have a look at our resources.

a) No voy a perdonártelo nunca. Perfect

b) No te voy a perdonarlo nunca. Not possible.
