    Non le ho detto il mio nome.I didn't tell you my name.
    Le ho dato la lettera.I gave you the letter.
Usage notes[edit]
  • In formal writing, when le is used as term of respect it is usually capitalised as Le to avoid confusion with le (her).
  • In informal contexts often replaced with gli, especially in spoken language.
  • Becomes glie when followed by a third person direct object clitic (lo, la, li, le, or ne).
  • Never elides.

  4. To you, for you (formal); dative of usted
    ¿A usted le gustan los caballos?Do you like horses?

Usage notes[edit]

  • Though le is usually the indirect object form of the direct object pronouns lo/la, it is often used in Spain as a direct object as well...e.g., «yo le amo» (I love him). This phenomenon is known as leísmo.
  • Note that when a sentence contains a noun that is an indirect object, a redundant indirect object le (or its plural form les) is also required; for example «yo le daré el libro a Jorge» (literally, "I him will give the book to Jorge"), where him/le corresponds to Jorge. This type of pronoun is obligatory. Both of the object pronouns le and les become se when followed by the direct object lo/la/los/las; hence, «yo se lo daré» (I will give it to him/her/them) rather than «yo le/les lo daré».
