Pronombres de complemento directo

Ana calls Teo Ana calls him.

¿Conoces a mi prima? Sí, claro que la conozco.

Singular Plural

Notes: In some regions they replace the direct object for a person with the indirect object. This common confusion is called leísmo. Example:

Yesterday I saw Juan at the bank. Yesterday I saw him at the bank.
