Sorry for previous two questions: keyboard problems! How would you say “Give me some” when some refers to people (or dogs etc)?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using double object pronouns in affirmative commands (L'Impératif)"
Kwiziq language super star
Give me some = Donne/z - m'en
Can't think of an example involving people or dogs maybe if you elaborate I'll be able to answer you more precisely ...
Thanks Cécile. It was a general question prompted by the comment that ‘en’ cannot be used to replace a plural noun referring to people or other animate objects. I can see that if you are trying to say ‘Speak to me about them’, you would say ‘Parle-moi d’elles (or d’eux)’ but couldn’t work out how you would say ‘some’ referring to animate objects with the imperative. Perhaps ‘Show me some (dogs)’ would be a better example?

You would probably would have to say :
Montrez-moi des chiens ...
