Indirect Object Pronoun – lui leur

Le Pronom Objet Indirect

An Indirect Object Pronoun – that I call an IOP – replaces a noun linked to an “indirect” verb, a verb that has a preposition in its infinitive form, such as PARLER À.“Je lui parle”

IOPs arise when you ask the question: To whom?

.......... Je parle à Anne. Je parle to whom?

.......... Je parle à Anne. --> Je lui parle.

lui, leur

“lui” – replaces a singular noun.

.......... Nous donnons une adhésion FRENCH ETC. à Fabienne.

.................... We give Fabienne a FRENCH ETC. membership.

.......... Nous lui donnons. une adhésion FRENCH ETC.

.................... We give her a FRENCH ETC. membership.

“leur” – replaces a plural noun.

.......... Nous donnons une adhésion FRENCH ETC. à nos enfants.

.................... We give our children a FRENCH ETC. membership.
