Intensive pronouns and reflexive pronouns

Pronouns are the stunt doubles of the English language. They keep communication going with or without the nouns. Pronouns come in to keep nouns from getting repetitive or when nouns are not clearly known. They do more work than you think, so read on to learn about them.

Intensive pronouns and reflexive pronouns look the same. However, they act differently in a sentence. Intensive pronouns put an emphasis on other pronouns or nouns. Reflexive pronouns rename the subject in a sentence. Look at the following examples:

Intensive pronoun "She herself will go to the bank. (herself emphasizes the pronoun she)
Reflexive pronoun "She cut herself on the arm. (herself renames the pronoun she)

Examples of intensive and reflexive pronouns:
myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, and themselves.
