Intensive Pronouns

 

An intensive pronoun refers back to another noun (or pronoun) in the sentence to emphasize it. For example:

  • The mayor himself attended the ceremony.
  • (The mayor is the noun being intensified. It is called the antecedent of the intensive pronoun.)

When used for emphasis, a word like himself is called an intensive pronoun (which is also known as an emphatic pronoun).

The intensive pronouns are myself, yourself, herself, himself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, and themselves.
