    Reflexive pronouns

    Quelques Règles D'utilisation des Pronoms Réfléchis



    The reflexive pronouns are :


    Singular : Myself   yourself  himself /herself/itself

    Plural    : Ourselves   yourselves themselves




    We use the reflexive pronouns when the subject and object are the same .


     I am looking myself at the mirror.  I = Subject   Myself = object



    Compare :


    - It 's not our fault. You can't blame us.

    - It's our own fault. We can blame ourselves.



     We DO NOT use a reflexive pronoun after these verbs : meet, feel , relax , concentrate



    -  Do you feel excited  ?   not 'feel yourself excited'

    -  What time shall we meet  ? not 'meet ourselves', not 'meet us'.



     We normally use wash/ shave/ dress/ without a reflexive pronoun :



    - He gets up, washes, shaves and dresses each morning. Not washes himself etc


      BUT we say - I dried myself
