Reflective Pronouns: What are they and how to use them?
Use eachother when A does an action to B and B does the same action to A.
e.g. “We love eachother” = I love you and you love me
Use a reflexive pronoun (myself, himself, yourself, herself, ourselves, themselves, itself) when the subject of the verb is the same as the object.
e.g. “I cut myself”
e.g. “She looked at herself in the mirror”
You can also use a reflexive pronoun for emphasis.
e.g. “Nobody helped me. I did it all myself.”
