Spanish Reflexive Prepositional Pronouns
Spanish reflexive prepositional pronouns are pronouns which refer back to the subject and occur after prepositions, often in order to emphasize the noun they replace.
There are 5 forms of reflexive prepositional pronouns in Spanish:
The first and second person singular and plural reflexive prepositional pronouns are the same as the non-reflexive prepositional pronouns. However, the reflexive pronoun for all of the third person singular and plural forms is sí.
All of the reflexive prepositional pronouns can be followed by the adjective mismo (or misma/mismos/mismas - depending on the gender and number of the subject) in order to emphasize the reflexive aspect.
Sí can mean yourself (with Ud.), yourselves (with Uds.), himself, herself, itself, themselves, or oneself.
1. Con + sí combine into consigo: Está contento consigo - He's happy with himself.
2. If the subject and pronoun do not refer to the same person, use non-reflexive prepositional pronouns.
