Reflexive verb building, rules

Reflexive Verbs


Coniuno uses the rules listed here to build reflexive verbs.

  1. Reflexive verbs are always built with être!
  2. Coniuno recognises reflexive verbs from the syntax: se + verb, e.g. se divertir or s’agrandir
  3. Generally spoken the following building scheme is valid for all reflexive verbs:

    Simple tenses:

    
            Singuliere I     Pers Pron + me     + [verb]
            Singuliere II    Pers Pron + te     + [verb]
            Singuliere III   Pers Pron + se     + [verb]
            Pluriel I        Pers Pron + nous   + [verb]
            Pluriel II       Pers Pron + vous   + [verb]
            Pluriel III      Pers Pron + se     + [verb]
            

    Simple tenses are built by combining the self pronoun with the conjugated verb.

    Example: Indicatif, Présent, Singuliere I of "se divertir" = je me divertis


    Composed tenses:

    
            Singuliere I     Pers Pron + me     + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            Singuliere II    Pers Pron + te     + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            Singuliere III   Pers Pron + se     + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            Pluriel I        Pers Pron + nous   + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            Pluriel II       Pers Pron + vous   + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            Pluriel III      Pers Pron + se     + [être] + Participe Passé (verb)
            

    Composed tenses are built by combining the self pronoun with the conjugated form of the auxiliary verb "être" and the Participio Passato of the verb.

    Example: Indicatif, Passé Composé, Singuliere I of "se divertir" = je me suis diverti


    Valid for the Imperatif:

    
            
            Singuliere I     -
            Singuliere II    [verb] + toi
            Singuliere III   -
            Pluriel I        [verb] + nous
            Pluriel II       [verb] + vous
            Pluriel III      -
            

    If the self pronoun ends with a vocal (me, te or se) and if the following word (verb / être) starts with a vocal as well, then the "e" of the self pronoun is replaced with an apostrophe.

    Example: Indicatif, Passé Composé, Singuliere II of "se divertir" = tu t’es diverti
