I am making my way through Spanish grammar and still a bit hung up on pronouns, especially with indirect objects.
For example, this sentence: I write an e-mail to him.
Do I have these parts right?
Subject = I
Verb = write
Direct object = e-mail
Indirect object = him
So, in Spanish it would be: Le escribo un email. (or) Le escribo un email a él.
Part of the book states the following about Indirect object pronouns:
Indirect object nouns or pronouns refer only to people (and to beloved pets); they answer the question “To or for whom is the subject doing something?” An indirect object pronoun can replace an indirect object noun but also is used in Spanish when the indirect object noun is mentioned.
Do I understand it correctly that IF a sentence has an indirect object that is a person/pet, then it's always correct to use the pronoun for it?
