    thank you

      Thanks for this video lesson Rebecca.

      Regino

        What I liked most about this lesson Rebecca were -in the first place- your easy to understand definition of object pronouns.

        In the second place, your illustrative examples.They further explained how to use them properly.

        Studying English grammar watching your videos is beyond doubt a great learning experience.

        Thanks a lot and take care!

Hi teacher !
is it correct to say “both of you should be proud of himself”, isn’t it?

dann

    it seems this way better “Both of you should be proud of yourself”

    belij

      Both is plurial so “yourselves” will be more appropriate

      JP

    No, not correct.

    Soei

6/6 :) I love it

Fatima

Very interesting lesson, thank you very much Rebecca.

Hi, dear teacher. I have a question. if you answer my question it will make me happy:) dear teacher can u explain me as. . . as and single as. what is difference between them? i meant for ex: my car is not as small as yours. and my car is not small as yours.
Best regards
Elvin (from Azerbaijan)

Elvin

He cut himself while chopping the potatoes.
I think word s comes with the verb cut, is it correct gramatically?
please guide.

aston512

It is correct becuase this sentence refers to a past situation, but it may be confusing since cut has the same form for past and past participle.

jx

    Yes the same form in the past, but the past participle is formed with the auxiliary “have” So that none confusing is possible.
    SP: I cut myself
    PP: I have cut myself

    JP

i pass the quiz perfect yes

elprofeta25

thanks to the whole team of engvid:)

common uses:
1)subject and object in a sentence are the same:

The baby saw himself/herself in the mirror and laughed.
If you don’t know him, you should introduce yourself.

2)Emphasize a noun, placed immediately after the noun:

Money itself can’t buy happiness.
I myself am not interested.

3)”by + Ref.Pronoun” signifies that the performer of the action had no help:

She made the dress by herself.

4)”be + Ref.Pronoun” means to act or behave in an unusual manner:

I am sorry for getting angry. I guess I am not myself today.

5)Ref.Pronoun used after many verb + preposition combination:

If you believe in yourself, you will succeed.
Take care of yourselves while I’m away.
If you don’t care about yourself, nobody else will.

Best,

    nice comment

    milania

    I have a question, why she say in the example: John and I are partners. Why is not correct use ME instead of I ?

    samantha7

      “John” and “I” are the “subject” of the sentence and subjects appear in nominative case-form.
      “Me” refers to the “object” of a sentence and objects appear in accusative case-form.
      For example, in the sentence “John invited me”, “me” is the object and therefore appears in accusative form.
      The nominative/accusative differentiation also appears in “he/him”, “she/her”, “we/us” and “they/them”.

      lauftammo

        Wait a minute guys!!!. . . nominative? . . . accusative case? . . . what on earth are you talking about?

        With all due respect, I think you should take a close look at Rafu’s explanation, it goes to the point.

        Regards

        Regino

        hello teacher Lauftammo can i contact with you ? and thank you . sorry for my grammar .

        duhaahmed

    you’re great!

    nguyenthihiep

    Oh, my God!!! I bet you ARE an English teacher, aren’t you?

    It never crossed my mind that I could ran across an explanation like this around here.

    Now, the use of reflective pronouns makes much more sense to me; of course, thanks to your short grammar explanations and examples.

    Woooow!!!!

    Thanks for sharing this information with us Mursalee45.

    By for now.

amina

Hi Rebecca, thank you for the lesson, but I’ve already watched the others videos on EngVid.com about Reflexive Pronoun, but none of them explain how to use the Reflexive “one another”, “each other”…

Could you please explain how/when to use it?

Ramon

Encore une fois merci Rebecca

cordelia04

hi dear rebecca!
thank u for the lesson.i loved it very much.but i’m a little confused with the sentence ‘i enjoyed at the party’ whats wrong with the sentence?
regards.

masoud

    yes i`m really confused with sentence i feel it`s ok when say i enjoyed at the party

    rowaida

    I think, the sentence ‘i enjoyed at the party’ is incorrect. Because the word ‘enjoy’ is a transitive verb. Transitive verbs are action verbs that have an object to receive that action. In that sentence the verb ‘enjoy’ has no object. It provokes a question that what i enjoyed.
    So this sentence should have to be like ‘i enjoyed the dance/music/food/atmosphere at the party’.
    Instead of ‘enjoy’ if I use another verb such as – ‘sing’, the sentence will be correct without having an object. (I sang at the party.) Because here ‘sing’ is an intransitive verb.

    rafu

      You’re right, and that’s an excellent explanation!

      Oh, my God!!! I bet you ARE an English teacher, aren’t you?

yolal78

Very good explainsation. easy to understand.

Tharan

Hello Rebecca, how are you ? Firstly, thanks for this video. Sorry my bad grammar, it’s the best I’d do by myself, without tralsnator.
Check out if I’ve understood the lesson.
I myself (singular)
you yourself (singular)
he himself (singular)
she herself (singular)
it itself (singular)
we ourselves (plural)
you yourselves (plural)
they themselves (plural)
My conclusion: we use the the Reflexive Pronoun when the subject makes and in the same time receives the action. Right ? I hope that so.
We can also use the Reflexive Pronoun to emphasize, but it’s another case. And about the use of (one = oneself) Is it generally used in modern English ?
Thank you Rebecca, I love your videos. As I’ve said, sorry my grammar, I’m from Brazil.

Hi,
In the 3rd example it is written
He hurt himself when playing hockey. My doubt is –is it hurt or hurts since the subject is singular

Hi teacher Ronni

Your way of teaching is interesting. I have a question. If I say, I enjoyed at the party. Is this correct? Please explain.

haniffa

Hello Ronni,I have a question about “a step”.I saw one sentence:”I took a step backwards to allow her to pass.” Could “a step” be the meaning of precaution? Does “a step” mean the real number? Or both meanings are included?

predrag

Hello Rebecca!
First of all thanks for your lessons.
I’d like to ask you what’s the difference between “by myself, by yourself, etc.” and “on my own, on your own, etc,”.
For example: “I made this cake by myself”, or “I made it on my own” ?
Is there a rule about it?
Thanks for your help,
Renato

Please help me in rectifying the error in the sentence
‘All the guest who the President invited to the party enjoyed a lot.’

Please give a bit detailed explanation.

Regards
Shaan

shaanpaul2012

    “All the guestS THAT the President invited to the party enjoyed IT a lot”.

    The pronout “IT” refers to the “party”

    This last sentence sounds a bit more natural to me.

    Hope this helps

Hi, Rebecca.
Thank you for apprehensible lessons, but I have a question.
Can we say: “Bob shaved Nick.”?
If so, then it’s correct to say, that “Bob shaved himself.” Isn’t it?

GeorgeDad

    HI,
    In my book,we can say: “Bob shaved his face” instead of “Bob shaved himself” that might doesn’t make sense!! & Bob shaved Nick’s face is right probably!!!!

    Gooodluck! :)

    fatiima8

      Thank you, Fatima.
      I think you are right. It’s my own language ;).

      GeorgeDad

Lots of tnx.

    Yes, you’re a rock star, Fátima. What a lovely name! But don’t be so enthusiastic. That’s a piece if cake.
    Probably? Might and probably? It doesn’t make any sense.

Hi there
i made 6/6 Cheer

ouadih

Tell me please, why in the second question of quiz, in the last sentence is not ”themselves”but themself ? However, ”They repeat themself many time” is considered the correct answer.Thank you very much. Good lesson !

Swan1

*Could you tell me, please…..question of the quiz….I’m sorry for the mistakes!

Swan1

Hi Swan1,
You had to find out the wrong question and in this case “themself” is wrong :-)

edig

Thanks a lot! Rebecca! Good lesson!

Ip Man Lee

About the ” shave” If it’s the first time that a man ( boy) makes his beard, I want to talk with emphasis. Is it wrong to say ” Bob shaved himself ” anyway ?

Peter

In the third example “He hurt himself..” or “he hurts himself..” ?

suditualex

Thank you Rebecca, your explanation helped me a lot :)

kpr2877

why number 4 wrong:
4. Which of the following is correct?

Susan and Dan are making the cake theirselves.
( x/wrong/why? Anita and Benjamin blamed themself for the delay.)
(/correct/ Betty and Loretta taught themselves how to play the guitar)
both type sentences in bracket are the same ?

chakim hamzah

    The problem with that sentences is that the subject is plural (Anita and Benjamin ) but the object is written misspelled . it should be themselves not themself.

    saalim

    Because, there is no word in English called ‘theirselves’. It should be themselves

    Plural forms for they and them is themselves:
    For e.g., I just showed the boys the refrigerator and told them to help themselves.

    In recent years, people have started to use themself to correspond to this singular use of they and them: it’s seen as the logical singular form of themselves.
    For example: This is the first step in helping someone to help themself.

    This form is not yet accepted by everyone, though, and you should avoid using it in formal written contexts. If you were writing the sentence above, you should say:
    This is the first step in helping someone to help themselves.
