can u give more examples of reflexive and emphatic pronouns. give as much as possible
There are eight reflexive pronouns, namely myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves and themselves.Few examples of reflexive pronouns are:
- He was ashamed of himself after his misconduct at school;
- Please help yourselves;
- Infants are unable to look after themselves; etc.
Emphatic pronouns, on the other hand, are used to just emphasise the action of the subject. For instance,
- He himself ordered the birthday cake
- I consulted the property dealer myself, etc.
Kindly note that an emphatic pronoun can be removed from the sentence and the core meaning would not be affected. A reflexive pronoun, on the other hand, is vital. The sentence wouldn’t make complete sense or wouldn’t seem logical if you remove the reflexive pronoun.
