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.
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.”
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
