When a man refers to himself, he can emphatically say: ἐγώ αὐτός. But when a woman wants to do the same, does she say: ἐγώ αὐτή?
Thank you in advance,
When a man refers to himself, he can emphatically say ἐγὼ αὐτός, and when a woman wants to do the same, she must say ἐγὼ αὐτή, of course.
Note that the grave accent is written instead of a final acute accent on a word that is followed immediately by another word in the sentence, as in ἐγὼ αὐτός and ἐγὼ αὐτή.
Similarly, if ἐγὼ αὐτός and ἐγὼ αὐτή are followed immediately by another word the acute accent in the nominative masculine singular αὐτός and in the feminine singular αὐτή must become grave.
