  • Very clear explanation. I especially appreciated the explanation of the exception to the use of le/les for a masculine human reference vis a vis the use for reference of things.

    Muy claro. Me gustaria espescialmente su explicacion sobre el uso de le/les para masculino y lo/los para cosas.

Spanish personal pronouns

  1. 1. Lecto Comprensión en Español Course on Spanish Language Reading Comprehension (Level 1) Personal Pronouns: Quick reference Broadly speaking, we can say that: 1. The Personal Pronouns used in subject position (that is, in the Nominative case, and which are stressed) are: 1ra persona del Yo Singular 2da persona del Tú /Vos Singular (De modo formal, Usted refiere a la 2da persona pero conjuga como la 3ra persona del singular) 3ra persona del Él /ella/ ello Singular 1ra persona del Plural Nosotros /nosotras 2da persona del Plural Vosotros/ vosotras (De modo formal, Ustedes refiere a la 2da persona pero conjuga como la 3ra persona del plural) 3ra persona del Plural Ellos /ellas 2. The Personal Pronouns used in direct object position (that is, in the Accusative case, and which are unstressed, placed before the verb) are: (Pronombres Usaremos como (Pronombres Personales Pronombres Personales Objeto Sujeto) Personales Directo) 1ra p. sing Yo Objeto Directo: Me Si 2da p. sing Tú /Vos Te refiere 3ra p. sing Él /ella/ ello/Usted Lo/la Spanish South America Online School of Languages www.spanishsouthamerica.org
  2. 2. Lecto Comprensión en Español Course on Spanish Language Reading Comprehension (Level 1) a ….. 1ra p. plural Nosotros Nos como /nosotras objeto 2da p. plural Vosotros/ Os vosotras 3ra p. plural Ellos /ellas Los/ las 3. The Personal Pronouns used in indirect object position (that is, in the Dative case, which are unstressed, placed before the verb or the direct object pronoun) are: (Pronombres Usaremos como (Pronombres Pronombres Personales Objeto) Personales Personales Sujeto) Objeto Indirecto: 1ra p. sing Yo Me Si 2da p. sing Tú /Vos Te refiere 3ra p. sing Él /ella/ Le/se a ….. ello/Usted como 1ra p. plural Nosotros Nos objeto /nosotras 2da p. plural Vosotros/ Os vosotras 3ra p. plural Ellos /ellas Les/ se Remember:  When the direct object is also replaced by a pronoun (lo/los, la/las) the indirect object is replaced by the pronoun se, in both singular and plural. - “¿Le diste el libro? (Did you give the book to her/him?) -“Si, se lo di.” (I gave it to her/him)  Se is also used as a reflexive pronoun as in "Ella se peina" (She combs herself) and the subject of an indefinite construction of the passive voice as in "Se dice" (It is said), “Se cree” (it is believed) Spanish South America Online School of Languages www.spanishsouthamerica.org
  3. 3. Lecto Comprensión en Español Course on Spanish Language Reading Comprehension (Level 1) Careful! Although the Real Academia Española recognizes lo, la, los, las as the unstressed third- person object pronouns in Spanish, some people may use le/les in direct object position, e.g. for a masculine human reference “Le llamé” instead of “Lo llamé” (I called him) while lo is kept for things. “¿Encontraste tu pasaporte? Sí, lo encontré”. This is also the case when the speaker wishes to show respect. “Les llamé ayer” (The third person in Spanish used as the second person to mean "you"-as ustedes- “I called you yesterday”). Summary IO Pronoun (when DO Pronouns IO Pronouns DO pronoun is also English Equivalent present) Me me Me Te te you (familiar) lo, la le se him, her, it, you (formal) Nos nos Us Os os you-all (familiar) los, las les se them, you-all (formal) © Edith Luna Villanueva Spanish South America Online School of Languages www.spanishsouthamerica.org
