This question already has an answer here:
I was reading through some of the posts regarding reference to something "possessed" by more than one person, and I can't seem to find an agreement of the usage of of myself.
Is it correct to say the following?
The efforts of myself and my ilk.
I understand that something like:
The efforts of my ilk and I
is incorrect, but I'm not sure about the former. I know it's neither an intensive or reflexive use, so I assume that it is incorrect, but any clarification in this regard would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
Edit: While the usage of "myself" has been adequately explained elsewhere, I just wanted clarification for this particular usage. I've heard it used frequently, but I couldn't find a grammatical basis for it. I apologise for the lack of clarity.
