We can use reflexive pronouns with objects:
- verb + reflexive pronoun + object when we do something for ourselves.
- verb + object + reflexive pronoun when we want to emphasize that another person did not do the action (or assist).
She cooked herself a quiche.
We taught ourselves French.
I repaired the tire myself.
They did the homework themselves.
My brother spoke to his boss himself about a raise.
