1 University of Texas at Austin Spanish and Portuguese Department Instructora: Sandra Alexandrino Double Object Pronouns in Spanish We have looked at both  Direct  and  Indirect  Object Pronouns and learned that we  place them either directly before a conjugated verb or attach them to an infinitive, a  gerund or a command.  But what happens when we have both  direct and  indirect object  pronouns in one sentence?  Who goes where?  Let's take a look at an example:  Yo te doy el dinero a ti. First, we'll identify the different components of this sentence:  Yo Doy El dinero Te, a Ti (informal  you) subject pronoun  I our conjugated verb  I'm giving direct object  it's what I'm giving Indirect object  Pronoun,  Indirect  Object   YOU are receiving  the benefit of my  action Now, we replace  el dinero   with the pronoun  lo   because  dinero   is masculine and  singular.  And we already have the Indirect Object Pronoun  te.   Both object pronouns must  come before the active/conjugated verb.  But which comes  first?  The indirect will ALWAYS come first.  An easy way to remember this is to think of  I.D.  ( I ndirect Object,  D irect Object).  So, our sentence above can be converted into this three-word sentence using both an  indirect and a direct object pronoun:  Te      lo       doy.  IO     DO   VERB 1
