I was curious if object pronouns are usually placed before or after the verb committing the action. I've searched on the internet but have come to no avail on rules as to placement. I have heard that it is general practice in Brazilian Portuguese to place all object pronouns before the verb, is that accurate? My confusion stems from example sentences like these: Nós lho venderíamos (We would sell it to him) and: dão-nos ao professor (They give them to the professor). The first example has object pronouns preceding the verb, the second following it. When do object pronouns precede the verb and when do they follow it? Are compound objects like lho even used? Obrigado de antemão!
