With all affirmative commands, the object pronouns are attached directly to the end of the imperative form of the verb. Compre Ud. el anillo. Buy the ring. Cómprelo Ud. Buy it. Traiga Ud. las cartas. Bring the letters. Tráigalas Ud. Bring them. If both direct and indirect object pronouns are attached, the indirect object pronoun comes before the direct object pronoun. Cómprelo Ud. Buy it. Cómpremelo Ud. Buy it for me. Tráigalas Ud. Bring them. Tráigaselas Ud. Bring them to her. Note that in order to maintain the original stress of the verb, a written accent is often needed. If the command has more than one syllable, a written accent is required when one or more pronoun is added. Command: compre (two syllables) cómprelos cómpremelos If the command has only one syllable, a written accent is only necessary when two pronouns are added. Command: haz (one syllable)
