Reflexive & Non-reflexive Direct-Object Pronouns
Remember that the verb really isn't reflexive, the object is reflexive.
An object is reflexive if it is the same as the subject:
· he sees himself
· they will respect themselves
· I have invited myself
Calling a verb with a reflexive direct object a "reflexive verb" is misleading and inexact.
The verbs included in a typical daily-routine unit are usually only practiced with reflexive pronouns, but they can also be practiced logically with non-reflexive pronouns:
· a man who goes to a barber will say, "he shaves me". And the barber will say "I shave him".
· patients in a hospital will say, "they bathe us", and the nurses will say, "we bathe them".
It's all very logical!
