Chapter 3 – Lesson 1 – Intensive Pronouns

Intensive Pronouns

 

An intensive Pronoun is a pronoun that emphasizes its antecedent.

 

Examples:

 

My brother tied his shoes himself.

 

Here, ‘My brother’ is an antecedent. ‘Himself’ is an intensive pronoun.

 

Intensive Pronouns always end with ‘self’ or ‘selves’. You can also see some intensive pronouns to be like below: Myself, himself, yourself, themselves, ourselves, and yourselves.

 

Examples:

 

I saw the girl myself.

The dogs turned the faucets on themselves.

The band itself is amazing.
