LE (article) * returns a definite instance of an x_1_ sumti of the following word, which would otherwise function as a selbri; thus, "LE" and the word which follows it together act like a sumti _LE tavla cu sutra tavla_ the talker talks fast _la suzyn. pu dunda ti'u li rere boi pa LE re cukta mi_ Susan gave, at 10 PM, one of the two books to me. USAGE NOTES * A sumti phrase begun with _le_ ends with the cmavo _ku_ unless no ambiguity results. * An "inner quantifier" indicates number of members in the group (which is the subject of the predication), whereas an "outer quantifier" indicates a portion of that number, so "le ci nanmu" would mean "the three men" whereas "ci le nanmu" would mean "three of the men", "ci le mu nanmu" would mean "three of the five men"; so, as a rough analogy, _le_ could be said to act as a divider (whereas _lo_ acts as a multiplier, according to the _xorlo_ proposal).

LE * To him, for him (dative of _él_) _Mi mamá va a escribirLE una carta a mi hermano._ — My mom is going to write a letter to my brother. * To her, for her (dative of _ella_) _LE dio un beso a Ana._ — He gave Ana a kiss. * To it, for it (dative of _ello_) _¡PonLE esfuerzo!_ — Put some effort into it! * To you, for you (formal; dative of _usted_) _¿A usted LE gustan los caballos?_ — Do you like horses? USAGE NOTES Though LE is usually the indirect object form of the direct object pronouns _lo_/_la_, it is often used as a direct object as well...e.g., «_yo le creo_» (I believe him/her); «_le gusta..._» (he/she likes...). 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 will give him 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/them to him/her/them) rather than «_yo le/les lo daré_».

    Le dio un beso a Ana.He gave Ana a kiss.

    ¡Ponle esfuerzo!Put some effort into it!
  4. To you, for you (formal; dative of usted)
    ¿A usted le gustan los caballos?Do you like horses?

Usage notes

Though le is usually the indirect object form of the direct object pronouns lo/la, it is often used as a direct object as well...e.g., «yo le creo» (I believe him/her); «le gusta...» (he/she likes...). 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 will give him 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/them to him/her/them) rather than «yo le/les lo daré».
