Spanish Grammar/Direct Object Pronouns

direct object pronouns
me nos
te os
lo, la los, las

Remember: the direct object of a sentence is the noun or noun phrase that is the recipient of the action of a transitive verb. Like "a book" in sentence (1) and "the food" in sentence (2):

           (1) I read the book. (Yo leí el libro.)

           (2) She brings the food. (Ella trae la comida.)

Direct objects are nouns and so can be replaced by pronouns. The example sentences with pronouns in place of the direct objects are:

           (1) I read it. (Yo lo leí.)

           (2) She brings it. (Ella la trae.)
