Understanding Reflexive Pronoun

Reflexive Pronoun is a pronoun that is used to express that the subject (such as people or animals) receives the action of the verb (reciprocal action) in a sentence. Pronoun is composed of: myself, yourself, herself, himself, itself, in the singular, andyourselves, ourselve s, and Themselvesin the plural form. The form is identical to the intensive pronoun .

The use of reflexive pronouns in everyday life:
ü  Reflecting back object
Example :
·         Ade is sleeping by herself.
·         Aji Injured himself while playing football.
ü  Replace the word 'alone’
Example :
·         She went to school by herself.
·         Joko is reading a book by himself.
ü  When the subject and object are the same thing
Example :
·         I am in love with myself.
·         We're getting ourselves in danger.
ü  Affirm the reflected
Example :
·         I need to see the boss himself.
·         Why can not you do your homework by yourself?
