When dealing with the command forms of reflexive verbs, the reflexive pronouns must be attached to  the end of an affirmative command and placed in front of a negative command. If you attach even  one pronoun to the end of the command form, you must add an accent mark to maintain the correct  stress. The written accent mark must be added to the next-to-last syllable before you attach any  pronoun. Table 1 provides the command forms of several reflexive verbs. Notice where the reflexive  pronoun is placed in each negative and affirmative form, and pay close attention to written accent
