Reflexive Pronouns

The Reflexive Pronoun si-

The reflexive pronoun has no nominative case and its forms are similar to the first person pronoun ek, except they begin with s-.



sek (himself, herself, itself, themselves)



seina (his own, her own, its own, their own)

This is always located after the modified noun.



sis (to himself, herself, itself, themselves)


When si- has a plural reference, it is usually accompanied by missó “each other, reciprocally”:

Eis qiþa sis missó “They talk to each other/ They talk among themselves”.


"ourselves" is expressed with the phrase

wit silbona (two people)
weis silbona (more than two people)
weis silbans (males)
weis silbons (females)


Non-nominative forms of the first and second person pronouns can also express reflexive meaning:

Ek qiþa mis. "I talk to myself".

Is qiþa imma. "He talks to himself".

Ita falha sis. "It hid itself".
