Language contrast In English, we use reflexive pronouns for actions that refer back to the subject of the sentence. (英语中，反身代词通常与句子的主语所指相同。） He fell over and hurt himself. She sometimes talks to herself. We also use reflexive pronouns to give special emphasis to an action. In these sentences, we stress the reflexive pronoun. (反身代词也用来特别强调一个动作。这时，我们通常把重音 放在反身代词上。） Did you buy the cake at the store？Do, I didn’t. I made it myself. Can you find expressions like these in Chinese?
