Transcript of Copy of REFLEXIVE & INTENSIVE PRONOUNS

REFLEXIVE
and
INTENSIVE PRONOUNS

Reflexive
Pronouns
Usage:

Reflexive pronouns
reflect
the
subject
of the
verb
. Use these pronouns when the
subject and object of the verb are the same person.
For Example:
Reynaldi
accidentally
kicked

himself
while playing football.
Reynaldi
accidentally kicked
Reynaldi
while playing football.
Reflexive pronouns follow the
verb of a sentence.
Examples:

We

asked

ourselves
if the new system would actually work.

I
really
hurt

mysel
f this morning when I fell down the stairs.

She

looked

at
herself
in the mirror for hours.

They

think

of

themselves
as upstanding members of the community.
Intensive
Pronouns
Usage:
Intensive pronouns are reflexive pronouns that are
used to emphasize the subject or object noun.
For Example:
The
mayor

himself
attended
the ceremony.
Example:
President Nixon

himself

resigned
a year later.
She

herself

was
surprised by the news.
We

went to hear the man

himself

speak.
The way to identify an intensive pronoun
is to remove it from the sentence; if it’s
an intensive pronoun, the sentence will
still make sense. If the sentence no longer makes sense, it’s a reflexive pronoun.
Examples:
The queen
herself
gave the
knight the award.
The queen gave the knight
the award
herself
.
Examples:
I
myself
like a little stroll after dinner.
The author approved the book cover for the buyers
themselves
.
Study the following sentences carefully. Identify the pronouns in the sentences whether Reflexive Pronoun or Intensive Pronoun.
1. I bought myself a car.
2. I bought the car myself.
3. He cut himself.
4. He cut his hair himself.
I myself hope that you have understood and enjoyed my discussion. Till next time. Ciao!
An intensive pronoun usually

comes right after the subject
or a different noun

in a sentence.
ACTIVITY:
Choose whether the underlined pronoun is reflexive or intensive. Write your answer before the sentence.
1. I found the treasure box
myself
.
2. You
yourself
should know the rules of your parents.
3. When Jeremy found his wallet, he bought
himself
an ice cream.
4. The mayor
himself
gave me this award.
5. The player
himself
scored the winning run.
6. The players prepared
themselves
by staying in shape.
7. I gave you that worksheet, so I know you got it
yourself
.
8. Myrzah
herself
promised to work harder next semester.
9. My neighbors found
themselves
involved in a lawsuit.
10. I bought my brother a present for
himself
.
