Usage notes

Note that some verbs have special senses when used reflexively. For example, do not confuse jag lär mig att... ("I learn to...") [reflexive] with du lär mig att... ("you teach me to...") and jag lär mig själv att... ("I teach myself to..."). Here, lär means teach(es) if it is not reflexive, but learn(s) if it is reflexive. Hence the need for the separate pronoun "mig själv" to be used when object and subject agree, but the verb nevertheless should not be used in the reflexive case.
