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 bought himself a taco
· they will give themselves more time
· I have written myself a note
Calling a verb with a reflexive indirect 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. Although these ideas are usually not expressed in English using indirect objects, translating the ideas literally from Spanish to English shows how Spanish-speakers think:
· a man who goes to a barber will say, "he trims me the beard". And the barber will say "I trim him the beard".
· patients in a hospital will say, "they wash us the body", and the nurses will say, "we bathe them the body".
