Intensive/Reflexive

Postby blutoonwithcarrotandnail » Fri Sep 05, 2008 4:15 pm

I think i have this right:

Intensive (IPSE)

We ourselves will sail accross the sea

Reflexive (ME)

I gave it to myself


Because: In the intensive you are sailing accross the sea - not yourself.
It does not matter if 'We' and 'Ourselves' overlap. And in the relexive
in the second sentence you did it to yourself and nothing is
complicating it.

Thanks.

I myself think so, blutoonwithcarrotandnail.
Ego ipse, canorcaerulecarotâclavoque, item puto.
Nota benè quoque: "I gave it to myself" "Id mihi dedi"
