Classifications of reflexive pronouns
2. Idiom function
It is when the subject performs an action alone, dispensing help from someone. It is indicated by the preposition “by”, preceding the reflexive pronoun.
Example : Sometimes Adryanna prefers to be by himself. (Sometimes Adryanna prefers to be/be alone).
3. Emphatic function
As the name announces, it is the pronoun used to emphasize the subject who practices the action of the speech. In this case, the pronoun will agree with the subject, being able to appear after him or after the object in the sentence.
Example : Diana wrote the letter herself. (Diana herself wrote the letter).
4. Reciprocal reflexive pronouns (reciprocal pronouns)
The reciprocal reflexive pronouns ( reciprocal pronouns) are expressed by “Each other” and “One another” to refer to more than one person or thing in the dialogue. Reflexive pronoun definition
There is a basic difference between reflexive pronouns and reciprocal pronouns. For example, in the phrase “They looked at themselves in the mirror” (They looked at themselves in the mirror), it is a reflective case because each of the subjects is the sufferer of their own action (they looked in the mirror). Unlike when it is said “They looked at each other lovingly” (They looked at each other lovingly), because in that sense they looked at each other and not at themselves. Therefore, it is a reciprocal case.
Thus, each other is used for when, in the sentence, the subject makes reference to two things or to two people indicating reciprocity. one another should be used when the subject of the sentence refers to more than two people or things, also indicating a reciprocal relationship.
