27.3.4 Word order in phrases with auxiliaries


If the phrase contains an auxiliary (haben or sein) the logic is the same only that the objects go directly behind the first conjugated verb.

An example  
  Ich habe Andrea ein Buch geschenkt.
  = I have given Andrea a book.
  Ich habe es Andrea geschenkt.
  = I have given it to Andrea.
  Ich habe es ihr geschenkt.
  = I have given it to her.
