What does COD mean?

I have encountered this acronym a few times in the Q&A Forums, for example: 'Only if the COD appears before the past participle ...'  I have also searched the wonderful KWIZIQ site without success.  Can someone tell me what COD means?

Bonjour Anthony,

A "COD" is a "Complément d'Objet Direct" or rather a "direct object":

Je mange une pomme = I eat an apple -> a direct object

See link here: need explanations from the grammar part cod

And for more details, take a look at this video too: French grammar made easy: verbs, subjects and objects

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
