Comments, Questions, Etc. About It in Spanish

Comment on the Spanish word “lo, la” in the following ways:

  • Tips and tricks to remember how to say it in Spanish
  • Explanations on the translation lo, la
  • Sentences that use the word “lo, la”
  • Questions about it in Spanish, etc.

This needs corrected here and many other place.

Direct object for “it” hould be “lo”or “la” but “le” can also be “it” as an indirect object, as well as “him/her”.

Additionally, “le” IS also a direct object for “him”, but for masculine objects.

Whereas it has become excusable in some dialects to use “lo” for direct object “him” there should not be an option, in MANY of the other sentence construction examples, for both “le” and “lo”, when a masculine direct object is needed!

It is either always “lo”, both (but both options NOT appear), or always proper grammar.

Note option 1 sets people up for failure IRL, but what is currently in place makes it difficult for most to learn to begin with.

PLEASE fix this.

You would want to use “lo” here for non-gender specific objects, and masculine objects and animals. “Le” when refering to a boy or man, and la for all else.

I would not try to verify this online because the internet has become a sludge pit at a waste processing plant. read a spanish book, ask a spanish speaker, or read spanish subtitles (assuming the writer writes what the people say and not what the writer thinks they mean”.)

Most assume “le” is not a direct object likely because they were taught this to make it “easier” and in brazen hubris the horde of ill-informed smear their **** across the english speaking world.

Anyways, le, if a direct object, usually has a prepositional phrase to clarify it is a direct object….which to me kind of defeats the purpose of using a direct object pronoun, but it depends on context.

A prepositional phrase would be “a Mark” or “a mi mama”.

Lo, la

Use these words for “it” when the object is having an action done to it. Do not jse it when the object is performing an action or when you are describing an object. This is a matter of direct vs indirect objects. In English, we use the same word for both. Other languages use separate words. Lo and la are used when “it” is an indirect object.

I saw it. Yo lo ví.
He left it. Èl lo dejó.
I understand it. Yo lo entiendo.

In these sentences, the subject is doing something to “it”. Also note that lo comes before the action.

**Tips to remember “lo, la”:**
– “Lo” is masculine and “la” is feminine; they often match the gender of the noun they refer to.
– Picture objects that are distinctly masculine or feminine to associate “lo” and “la” with the appropriate object.
– If a word ends in -o, it’s usually masculine, hence use “lo”. For -a endings, which are usually feminine, use “la”.
– Think of “lo” as “the” for abstract concepts and neuter objects and “la” as “the” for feminine. “Lo” is also used for direct object pronouns for masculine nouns and “la” for feminine.

– “Lo” and “la” can either be definite articles (the equivalent of “the” in English) or direct object pronouns (equivalent of “it/him” or “it/her” in English).
– As articles, “lo” and “la” precede masculine and feminine singular nouns, respectively.
– As object pronouns, “lo” represents masculine and neuter objects and “la” represents feminine objects that are being directly received by the action of the verb.

**Other words that mean the same thing:**
– “El” is the male equivalent of “la” but it serves only as a definite article, not as a pronoun.
– “Los” and “las” are the plural forms of “lo” and “la” as definitive articles, translating to “the” for masculine and feminine plural nouns respectively.
– “Le” and “les” are indirect object pronouns but don’t directly correspond to “lo” and “la.”

**Alternate meanings like slang:**
– “Lo” in expressions like “lo de siempre” can mean “the usual.”
– “La” can also be used in the colloquial phrase “la que se avecina,” meaning “what’s coming” or “what’s next.”

**Examples of sentences that use “lo, la”:**
– Definite article: “Voy a leer *la* revista.” (I’m going to read *the* magazine.)
– Definite article: “No puedo creer *lo* que veo.” (I can’t believe *what* I see.)
– Direct object pronoun: “¿Has visto el libro? No, no *lo* he visto.” (Have you seen the book? No, I haven’t seen *it*.)
– Direct object pronoun: “Tengo la pluma – Puedes darme *la*?” (I have the pen – Can you give it to me?)
– Abstract concept: “Es importante vivir el momento y disfrutar *lo* bueno de la vida.” (It’s important to live in the moment and enjoy *the* good things in life.)
– Slang: “Vamos a lo nuestro.” (Let’s stick to our thing/what we’re here for.)
