Direct or indirect obj pronoun - typo?

Direct or indirect obj pronoun - typo?

" it is necessary to repeat the direct object with another pronoun (me, te, le, nos, os, les) in the same sentence."

If we are referring to the direct object, don't we have to use the direct obj pronouns? That also appears to be what happens in the examples.

Thanks

Hola Doug

You are right. I corrected the typo. It is now listing the correct direct object pronouns:

 (me, te, lo, la, nos, os, los, las)

Gracias y un saludo

First question:

Can you say, “A él lo vi,” or can you not start sentences with “a + direct object pronoun”?

Second question:

What about the pronouns esto/a and eso/a? Do similar rules apply as the ones you mentioned?

For example, would it be correct to say “lo vi a eso” but INcorrect to say “vi a eso”?

And I suppose I should say, clarification about those pronouns should be added to the direct and indirect object repetition grammar lessons.

Thanks,

Black
