Reflexive verbs express an action that reciprocates back to the subject. In other words, whoever is speaking is doing an action to himself. Examples in English would be: I wash myself, he hurts himself, we hate ourselves. The reflexive pronouns always follow the subject and verb.
je / u
The reflexive pronoun u is often replaced by zich to avoid the double occurrence of u.
Verbs that are always reflexive:
zich schamen voor
zich vergissen in
zich verheugen op
get annoyed by
be ashamed of
be mistaken about
look forward to
imagine, introduce oneself
Verbs that can be reflexive or used with other direct objects
to be bored
The emphatic forms of the reflexive pronouns can only be used with the verbs that can be reflexive or used with other direct objects, and never with verbs that are always reflexive.
Elkaar is used when there is a reciprocal meaning of "each other" in English.
