#EngClass: Reflexive Pronouns

Today we will learn about reflexive pronouns.

A reflexive pronoun is a pronoun that we use when the object reflects the subject.

A personal pronoun has its own reflexive pronoun.

There are two types of reflexive pronouns: singular and plural.
1. Singular:

a. I – myself

E.g. “I told myself to stay calm and and to be strong.”
b. You – yourself

E.g. “You have to believe in yourself.”
c. He – himself

E.g. “Ron decided to give himself a reward for working so hard.”
d. She – herself

E.g. “She cooled herself with a fan.”
e. It – itself

E.g. “Knowledge itself is power.”
2. Plural

a. You – yourselves

E.g. “Come and warm yourselves by the fire.”
b. They – themselves

E.g. “They prepare themselves before going picnic tomorrow.”
c. We – ourselves

E.g. “It’s important for all of us to be honest with ourself.”
