Pronombre reflexivo

Spanish reflexive pronoun

See also: Pronombre and Pronoun types

A reflexive pronoun indicates that the action of a verb is performed by the same person it affects: the subjects are doing something to themselves or to each other.

For example, in I shave myself, I is both the person doing the action and the person it is done to.

Reflexive pronouns are mainly used to express 'self' as part of a pronominal verb (which may be reflexive or reciprocal).

For example:

Yo me levanto 
I get up.

Tú te duchas.
You have a shower.

Él se afeita.
He shaves.

Reflexive pronouns are also used to express reciprocity:

Ellos se aman 
They love each other.

Vosotras os miráis.
You look at each other.
