【五分钟语法小课堂】为什么“自拍”叫“Selfie”?

语法规则:

我们使用反身代词将句中的物体、人物反射。反身代词以 “-self” (单数)或”-selves” (复数)结尾。

下面是8个反身代词:

 

                            反身代词

单数    Myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself

复数    Ourselves, yourselves, themselves

 

我们“by +反身代词” 表示强调。它也有“I made it.” 的意思。然而,假如你要说 “I made it by myself,” 表示你的语气更强,并且你在突出强调是你(YOU)独立完成的。

例句:

  1. He sends a postcard to himself.
  2. Help yourself.
  3. “Good breeding consists of concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.” (Mark Twain)
