  • Direct object pronouns can be used to replace direct object nouns to reduce repetition. It would be like saying "it", "him", "her", "them" in English. In Spanish they must agree with the noun they are replacing.
  • Las flores
  • Yes, I have the FLOWERS.
  • las
  • Yes, I have THEM.
  • Los platos sucios
  • No, I am not washing THE DIRTY DISHES.
  • los
  • No, I am not washing THEM.
  • PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
  • After replacing the direct object noun with a pronoun, be sure to place it before the conjugated verb. Here is the conversation all together.
  • ¿Juan, tienes las flores? ----------------------------------Juan, do you have the flowers?

  • las
  • Sí, yo las tengo.
