Reflexive Pronouns.


Reflexive Pronouns are used in the Oblique Cases to re[QUERY] to the subject of the sentence or clause in which they stand ([QUERY] § 299): as, sé amat, he loves himself.

a. In the first and second persons the oblique cases of the Personal p[QUERY] nouns are used as Reflexives: as, mé videó, I see myself; té laudás, [QUERY] praise yourself; nóbís persuádémus, we persuade ourselves.

b. The Reflexive pronoun of the third person has a special form u[QUERY] only in this sense, the same for both singular and plural. It is the declined: -

GEN. suí, of himself, herself, itself, themselves

DAT. sibi, to himself, herself, itself, themselves

ACC. sé (sésé), himself, herself, itself, themselves

ABL. sé (sésé), [by ] himself, herself, itself, themselves

NOTE 1: Emphatic and reduplicated forms of are made as in the personals ([QUERY] § 143. d, e). The preposition cum is added enclitically: as, sécum, with himself, e[QUERY].

NOTE 2: An old form séd occurs in the accusative and ablative.
