Question about the word concern
Should I use it with object pronouns such as yourself or myself?
Here are two examples:
-I don't concern (myself) with the economic failure caused by corruption.
- He doesn't concern (himself) about his exam score.
Thanks in advance!
Yes. The most important to remember about reflexive pronouns is that there always needs to be an antecedent for the pronoun. In both your sentences, these are present. 'I' in the first, and 'he' in the second.
This is incorrect: She told Betty and myself that he was coming. 'Myself' has no antecedent, so it should read: She told Betty and me that he was coming.
