what is reflexive
We use a reflexive pronoun when we want to refer back to the subject of the sentence or clause. Reflexive pronouns end in “-self" (singular) or “-selves” (plural).
There are eight reflexive pronouns, namely myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves and themselves.
Few instances of the same are:
- He was ashamed of himself after his misconduct at school;
- Please help yourselves;
- Infants are unable to look after themselves; etc.
