Adjective Position

Spanish adjective positionSpanish adjectives may be found before or after the nouns they modify, depending on various factors. Generally speaking, descriptive adjectives follow nouns, while limiting adjectives precede nouns.

   

Double Pronoun Order

Spanish double pronoun word orderSometimes one pronoun just isn’t enough. A Spanish sentence might need both a direct and indirect object, or a reflexive pronoun plus an object. These "double pronouns" cannot be separated, but the word order is very simple.

   

   

Indirect Objects

Spanish indirect objectsAn indirect object is a person that someone or something does something to indirectly. In both Spanish and English, indirect objects are often replaced with indirect object pronouns.

   

Negative Pronouns

Spanish negative pronounsSpanish negative pronouns (nada, nadie, ninguno) replace and simultaneously negate nouns. They may be the subject or object of the verb they’re used with.
