French reflexive pronouns - me, te, se
Reflexive pronouns (French: les pronoms réfléchis) are applied between the subject and the verb when the action in the sentence is executed and received by the subject. They are commonly used when someone is talking about their daily routine. Besides that reflexive verbs aim to use the reflexive pronoun in terms of oneself.
Reflexive pronouns can be divided into
- weak form pronouns
- strong form pronouns
|Person||Reflexive pronoun: weak form||Reflexive pronoun: strong form|
Keep in mind that me, te and se become m', t' and s' before verbs that start with a vowel or mute h.
