You conquered yourself and Rome
in this case, you would use the 2nd singular reflexive tÄ“
because "yourself" refers back to the subject of the verb. if you wanted to use ipse
, the English sentence would have to be something like "You yourself (ipse
here) conquered yourself (tÄ“
here) and Rome."
You denied myself
i'm pretty sure this one just doesn't make sense. other options would be "You denied yourself" (using reflexive tÄ“
) or "I denied myself" (using reflexive mÄ“
something to remember about reflexive pronouns--i'm going to put it in italics because it's important--reflexive pronouns always refer back to the subject.
hope this helps
