Self, selve, adj. Sax. answering to the Belg. felf, the Fr.
même, the Lat. ipse, and the Gr. Avtos. See the Efsay, 66. n. 30.-With the article prefixed it answers to the Lat. idem and the Goth. famo, from whence our fame. See ver. 2586; in the felve moment, in the same moment; ver. 11706, in the selve place, in the same place.-Thefe two usages of the adj. self, when joined to a substantive, might be confirmed by the uniform practice of all our writers from the earliest times down to Shak(pere; but as they are both now obsolete I chuse rather to take this opportunity of adding a few words to what has been said in the Ejay, &c. loc. cit. upon the usage of the adj. self when joined to a pronoun, in which light only it appears to have been considered by Wallis, when he pronounced it a substantive, answering nearly to the Latin persona.-Dr. Johnson, in his Dictonary, has very rightly established the primary fignification of self to be that of an adjective, but in its connexions with pronouns he seems rather inclined to suppose it a substantive; first, because it is joined to possessive or adjective pronouns, as my, thy, her, &c.; and secondly, because it has a plural number, felves, contrary to the nature of the English adjective. The latter reason, I think, cannot have much weight, when it is remembered that the use of selves as the plural number of self has been introduced into our language since the time of Chaucer. Selven, which was originally the accusative ca. sing. offelf, is used by him indifferently in both numbers; I myfelven, 9334; ye yourselven, 9380, 12676; he himselven, 4464, 9919.-The former reason also will lose its force if the hypothesis which I have ventured to propose in the Elay, &c. loc. cit. Thall be admitted, viz. that in their combinations with
