28. Portuguese Object Pronouns
The object pronouns are used when you're talking about someone or something that is not the subject of an action, and these pronouns are placed together with the verb. If -lo/-la/-los/-las come after a verb in the infinitive, you take off the -r of the verb, and put an acute accent (´).
-lo / -la / -lhe
-los / -las / -lhes
Vou dizer-lhe a verdade. I will tell you the truth.
Vou apresentá-lo (inf: apresentar) a você. I will introduce him to you.
In everyday speech you can put the object pronoun in front of the verb, but it's technically wrong to write it this way:
Me diga se estou certo. Tell me if I'm right.
Diga-me se estou certo. Tell me if I'm right.
