CHAPTER 15 – Definition – Indirect object – Complément d’objet indirect (COI)

In French, it’s called un complément d’objet indirect (indirect object).

The indirect object is a noun or a pronoun that stands as the beneficiary of the action of the verb and its direct object. For example,  “Je parle à Michel “,  the noun “Michel” is the indirect object of my talk (parle) and is introduced by à.

In French, the prepositions à and de introduce indirect object nouns.

Indirect pronouns have their own form. For example lui, leur, me, moi, etc.
