17.4.4 Sequence of several personal pronouns


  17.4.4.1 ... pattern 3

In the previous chapter 16: pronouns we have devided the sequence of pronouns in different paterns. In pattern 1, we described the situation that some dative/indirect objects (me, te, nous, vous) are before the accusative, others (lui, leur) go after the dative/indirect object.
In the imperative all dative/indirect objects go after the accusative/direct object. The pronominal adverbs go at the end. We call this here the pattern 3 and 4.

Pattern 3: The sequence of pronouns in the imperative clause, if the pronouns moi, toi, nous are the dative/indirect object.
