So, am I correct in saying that the indirect object pronouns, 'lui' and 'leur' are applicable to both animate and inanimate things?
Dictation exercise A2
Follow the link here: Ils lui ont donné leur nom
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
Both lui and leur are indirect personal pronouns and are used with animates.
Y and en are used with inanimates.
"Indirect object pronouns replace nouns for verbs following by the preposition à (to or at): Me (me), te (you), nous (us), vous (you), lui (him or her) and leur (them). For example, Je parle à la fille. (I speak to the girl. I speak to her)."
"Indirect object pronouns y and en are used for inanimate things and ideas for verbs followed by à and de."
Hope this helps.
