"Je le vois" est le mieux - i see him
je la vois i see her
merci; et comment dit-on "I see it"
would that not also be "je le vois" and, if so, how can I distinguish between the two?
i see it - "je le vois" or "je la vois"
to distinguish the two :
the same thing in english
"i see it" refers to a thing, an object
"i see him/her" refers to a person
je le/la vois : if you can ask"je vois QUOI? le/la refers to a thing
i see the chair/i see it-- je vois la chaise/je la vois
if you can ask"je vois QUI? le/la refers to a person
i see Tom/i see him-- Je vois Tom/je le vois
one more thing
je LUI vois means "je lui prédis" (i preditc him/her)
in this case with the term "lui" the verb "voir" means"prédire/to predict)
oh - I see; thank you
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum and mk-tintin's excellent help. What you are working with are object pronouns.
Direct-Object pronouns = me (m'), te (t'), le, la (l'), nous, vous, les
Indirect-Object pronouns = me, te, lui, nous, vous, leur
NOTE that it is the 3rd person that causes difficulty. In English the difference is (D.O.) her, him it and them but the I.D.O. either states or has understood (to, for, at, from) him, her, them.
