What about the pronoun si?

What about the pronoun si?

I recall that an earlier lesson mentioned the phrase "entre si" meaning "among themselves". The pronoun "si" seems to be the object version of the reflexive pronoun "se". When following the preposition "con", it also contracts to "consigo" just like "conmigo" and "contigo". The word "consigo" is also the same form as the first person present tense indicative mode of "conseguir". Maybe these discussions can be added to this lesson? Also, let me know if the pronoun "si" carries an accent or not. I think there is but I am not sure. Thank you.

Hola Michael

Yes, the pronoun always takes the accent. We have a lesson about these emphatic reflexive pronouns here. That bit of information has been added to our lesson about the difference between si and sí.

Un saludo
