I know that in the lesson on mergic clitic pronouns it says “These mergers are not usually done with – lhes . When -lhes is replacing your indirect object, you maintain the direct object in place after it.”
Yet, I see in a textbook I am using that it shows -lho, -lha, -lhos and -lhas when combining a direct and indirect object (for lhes). A native speaker I work with who’s from o Minho also says she uses these forms. So, the question is are they generally avoided because they are confusing, is it a regional thing or is something else accounting for the difference between your guidance and what I’m seeing elsewhere?
Thanks as always for your wonderfully clear and insightful grammar answers!!
