Unformatted text preview: Pronominal verbs are verbs that, put simply, include pronouns. These pronouns are me, te, se, nous, and vous and are used as either direct objects or indirect objects, depending on the verb that they modify. There are three types of pronominal verbs: reflexive verbs, reciprocal verbs, and naturally pronominal verbs. Reflexive Verbs Reflexive verbs reflect the action on the subject. Je me lave. - I wash myself. Nous nous lavons. - We wash ourselves. Ils se lavent. - They wash themselves. Reflexive verbs can also be used as infinitives. Je vais me laver. - I'm going to wash myself. Je ne vais pas me laver. - I'm not going to wash myself. Reciprocal Verbs With reciprocal verbs, people perform actions to each other. Nous nous aimons. - We like each other. Naturally Pronominal Verbs Some verbs are pronominal without performing a reflexive or reciprocal action. Tu te souviens? - You remember? V: Going to Work V: At Work travailler: to work travailler pour: to work for (somebody) G: Devoir French Verb • Print version • audio (upload) devoir to have to, to owe past participle: dû Singular first person je dois jeuh dwah I have to Plural nous devons noo dehvohn we have to second person tu dois too dwah you have to vous devez voo dehvay you have to il doit eel dwah he has to third person elle doit ell dwah she has to ils doivent eel dwahve they have to (masc. or mixed) on doit ohn dwah one has to elles doivent ell dwahve they have to (fem.) ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
