See explanation.


Such pronouns aree called reflexive not reciprocal.

They are formed by using personal pronouns in objective case in third person (him,her) and in possessive case in other persons (my,your,their) and self (for singular) or selves (for plural).

The full list is:


  1. I - myself
  2. you - yourself
  3. he - himself, she - herself, it - itself


  1. we - ourselves
  2. you - yourselves
  3. they - themselves
