Title: Reflexive Verbs

Reflexive Verbs
  • Actions Performed Upon Oneself

What is a reflexive verb?
  • In both English and Italian, reflexive verbs
    refer to when an action is being performed upon
    oneself.
  • For example
  • I wash my hair.
  • Mi lavo i capelli.
  • In English, we say my hair. In Italian, when
    using reflexive verbs, body parts are referred to
    by using the definite article.

How do Reflexives work in Italian?
  • In Italian, reflexive infinitives end in si.
  • Define the following infinitives , now, in your
    notes
  • Addormentarsi Alzarsi Chiamarsi
  • Dimenticarsi Divertirsi Farsi la barba
  • Farsi il bagno Lavarsi Mettersi
  • Prepararsi Ricordarsi Riposarsi
  • Sedersi Sentirsi Sposarsi
  • Svegliarsi Vestirsi

    pronouns when conjugated.

How are Reflexive Verbs Conjugated?

    infinitive to get to the stem.

How are Reflexive Verbs Conjugated?
  • Place the reflexive pronoun directly before the
    conjugated verb.
  • mi lavo ci laviamo
  • ti lavi vi lavate
  • si lava si lavano
  • Using subject pronouns is not necessary, but I
    would with third person to differentiate between
    lui, lei, Lei, loro and Loro.
