Accidents - Verbs with Direct & Indirect Objects

Reflexive Only

hurts/injures, cuts, burns, breaks, sprains/twists, bruises, scrapes/scratches

This vocabulary requires that you understand how indirect objects work in Spanish, including reflexive indirect objects. Take a few days to learn about them here.


MINI-LESSON

Reflexive & Non-reflexive Indirect-Object Pronouns

To express these ideas, keep in mind that the natural wording in English is different from Spanish. Make sure to add an indirect object and to use the word "the" in Spanish: don't think "he breaks his leg" but rather "he breaks himself the leg".

This same structure is used for many actions that are part of one's daily routine to get ready: in Spanish, don't think "she washes her hair" but rather "she washes herself the hair".

Recall that in a sentence like "se corta" ("he cuts himself"), the verb has one object: se is the direct object of the verb.

But in a sentence like "se corta el dedo" ("he cuts himself the finger"), the verb has two objects: el dedo becomes the direct object of the verb, and se is now the indirect object of the verb.

Daily Routine - Verbs with Direct & Indirect Objects

Non-reflexive & Reflexive

This vocabulary requires that you understand how indirect objects work in Spanish, including reflexive indirect objects. Take a few days to learn about them here.


MINI-LESSON

Reflexive & Non-reflexive Indirect-Object Pronouns

Remember that the verb really isn't reflexive, the object is reflexive.

An object is reflexive if it is the same as the subject:

· he bought himself a taco

· they will give themselves more time

· I have written myself a note

Calling a verb with a reflexive indirect object a "reflexive verb" is misleading and inexact.

The verbs included in a typical daily-routine unit are usually only practiced with reflexive pronouns, but they can also be practiced logically with non-reflexive pronouns. Although these ideas are usually not expressed in English using indirect objects, translating the ideas literally from Spanish to English shows how Spanish-speakers think:

· a man who goes to a barber will say, "he trims me the beard". And the barber will say "I trim him the beard".

· patients in a hospital will say, "they wash us the body", and the nurses will say, "we bathe them the body".

It's all very logical!

PRONOUN 'TAGS' WITHOUT THE VERB

Because the pronoun 'tag' does not complete the verb, it is also used alone (i.e., outside the context of a sentence) as a short answer.

In this exchange, the first answer is using the verb, and the second is not.

- ¿A quién invitamos? (Whom are we inviting?)

- Lo invitamos a él.

- ¿¿¿A quién???

- ¡¡¡A él!!!

Likewise, the personal pronoun "lo" couldn't be used as a one-word answer without the verb.
