You say it is neccesary to use the posseive pronouns when doing something to a part of ourselves, but a sentence like "I hit myself on the head" is prefectly grammatical.

Laura said...

@Myrtone,
Your sentence is correct and if it helps you to understand the German, that's a useful thing. But be careful, it's not quite the same as the sentences I was looking at. Unlike the German examples I gave you, the verb in your sentence is linked to the body part through a preposition ("on"). Also you can't extend its usage to sentences about, say, washing your hands or cutting your hair, whereas German is perfectly comfortable talking about these things by using a dative personal pronoun instead of a possessive pronoun.

Laura said...

Reflexive verbs are verbs where the object (the person or thing the action is done to) is the same as the subject (the person or thing doing the action), for instance to hurt yourself. Reflexive verbs are a lot more common in German than English. This podcast explores why and looks at the most important reflexive verbs. It also looks at when reflexive verbs take an accusative reflexive pronoun, when they take a dative one and why.
