I have had a request to explain pronouns that end in self/selves. This is a category of words called “compound personal pronouns.” They are
…himself, herself, itself, themselves
First, let’s say that there are several mistakes made in the way these words are said.
…ourselves, not ourself
…themselves, not themself or theirself
…himself, not hisself
…themselves, not theirselves
These words are used as reflexive or intensive pronouns.
Reflexive: With this use, the word has a grammatical function in the sentence and can thus not be removed. There are no punctuation issues.
…I saved it for myself. (object of the preposition)
…She included herself in the list. (direct object)
Intensive: With this use, the word is an appositive. It renames a noun and makes it more “intense,” stronger and can be removed from the sentence without changing the meaning. These rarely need commas.
…I myself do not believe a word of his testimony.
…We gave it to Mary herself.
