french - reflexive verbs

posted by .

the word order for past tense is
je ne me le lui y en ai pas donné

but when you're using reflexive verbs for past tense its "je me suis"

does the suis incorporate into the word order?

  • french - reflexive verbs -

    If I understand your question, with the past tense, whether you are using avoir or être with the past participle, the word order before the verb is still:
    je > me > le (l') > lui > y > en > verb
    te te la (l) leur
    il se les
    elle nous
    on vous
    nous
    vous

    Your example:
    je ne me le lui y en ai pas donné
    would never happen!

    These are the frequent combinations:
    me le, me la, me les
    te le, te la, te les
    nous le, nous la, nous les
    vous le, vous la, vous les
    BUT
    le lui, la, lui, les lui
    le leur, la leur, les leur
    Examples: Ils me la vendent.
    Je vais le lui montrer.
    Leur en avez-vous prêté?
    Nous les y avons rencontrés.
    Il y en a plusieurs.

    In the affirmative imperative, the object pronouns follow the verb and are connected to it, and to each other, by hyphens. The direct object precedes the indirect.
    verb -moi
    -toi
    -le -lui
    -la -nous -y -en
    -les -vous
    -leur

    Examples: Envoyons-le-moi.
    Montrons-les-lui.
    Attendez-nous-y.

    Combinations moi + en and toi + en become m'en and t'en.
    Prêtez-m'en.
    Va-t'en.

    If this doesn't answer your question, please clarify exactly what you need to know.

    If the auxiliary (helping) verb is avoir that's one thing, but if it's a Reflexive Verb, they ALL take être as the helping verb.

    passé composé with avoir: J'ai eu beaucoup de devoirs. / Il a cru qu'elle était malade. / Nous avons beaucoup ri.

    passé composé of a Reflexive Verb:
    Je me suis amusée (f.) / vous vous êtes lavés (if vous is plural) / ils ne se sont écrits
