As we learned in Act 16, a pronominal verb is a verb that has a reflexive pronoun, that is, a pronoun referring back to its subject. These verbs are easily recognized by the pronoun se before the infinitive: se lever (to get up), se laver (to wash up), s’habiller (to get dressed), etc.
FORMATIONIn the passé composé, pronominal verbs are conjugated with être as their auxiliary. Past participles of pronominal verbs are formed like nonpronominal part participles. Note that the reflexive pronoun (me, te, se, nous, vous, se) precedes the auxiliary.
