You, me, we and us are all too often replaced nowadays by the more cumbersome and incorrect use of yourself, yourselves, myself and ourselves in sentences. You wouldn’t say ‘Look at myself’, or ‘Yourself and myself are walking down the road’, it just doesn’t make sense. Does it seem rude to use the more direct ‘you’ or ‘we’? Or does it just add more emphasis because the correct words are lacking in syllables? Why just say ‘yes’, for instance, when you can use four syllables with ‘absolutely’.
