difference between emphatic pronoun and reflexive pronoun

  • 0

A reflexive pronoun is a word that 'reflects' back on the subject like a mirror. The reflexive pronouns are: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves. Example sentences: I made the cookies myself. You are a good friend yourself. They fixed the roof themselves. He made himself pancakes for breakfast. An emphatic pronoun is a reflexive pronoun used to emphasize the antecedent; for example: I myself made the cookies. You yourself are a good friend. They themselves fixed the roof. He himself made pancakes for breakfast.
