The Placement of Direct Object Pronouns

The Placement of Direct Object Pronouns. Learn to speak European Portuguese with Maria Oliveira’s language learning programs on Cd, courses online and lessons.  This short lesson will explain the usage and placement of Direct Object Pronoun with an IR infinitive.  As you can see on the examples, the noun direct object can be replaced by a pronoun and added to a verb infinitive.

Study the following steps and examples:

1.  First replace the ir by i

2.  Then add a hyphen

3.  And then add either lo/ la/ los / las.  The gender and the number of the pronoun must agree with the noun replaced.

Study the following examples:

Eu quero subir a montanha.                   Eu quero subi-la

Tu queres seguir as raparigas.              Tu queres segui-las.

Eu quero investir o dinheiro.                  Eu quero investi-lo

Ela quer partir os bolos.                          Ela quer parti-los.
