Direct Object Pronouns

Direct Object Pronouns - A direct object pronoun is used in place of person or thing that receives the action of the verb.

The direct object can be found by asking the questions:

  • Who receives the action of the verb?
  • What receives the action of the verb?

For example:

  • John sees Jane
  • Who receives the action of "sees"? 
  • Answer: Jane was seen, therefore, Jane is the direct object

The direct object pronoun can replace the direct object, for example:

  • John sees her
  • "her" is the direct object pronoun
