What are reflexive verbs ? Reflexive verbs are transitive verbs whose subject and object refer to the same person or thing, so the object is always a reflexive pronoun such as myself, yourself and herself. Examples : 'I washed myself'; 'He introduced himself and they shook hands."
Watch out because verbs that are reflexive in some languages may not be reflexive in English. For example, in Spanish we say "relajarse" but in English we say relax, not relax yourself. In French, we say "se rappeler", but in English we say remember, nor remember yourself, and in German, we say "sich vorstellen", while in English we say imagine, not imagine yourself.
