DIRECT OBJECT PRONOUNS
A direct object is a noun following the verb that answers the questions “what?” or ”'whom?”. Remember a pronoun replaces a noun, and in this case the noun is a direct object. For example, Marie might ask: “Jeanne, will you help me tonight?”, where the direct object pronoun “me” stands for Marie and answers the question “whom?” Whether a verb takes a direct object or an indirect object depends on whether the specific verb is transitive or intransitive. We’ll learn about indirect objects and intransitive verbs in future lessons.
