16.5.6 Specialty with reflexive verbs

As also in the previous chapter, the accusative/direct object are before the first conjugated verb (and not before the infinitive). However, the reflexive pronouns and the pronominal adverbs y and en are put before the infinitive. Accusative/direct object and reflexive pronouns as well the pronominal adverbs are separated, as you can see in the following table. .

Je l' ai vu se baigner. = I have seen him bathing.
Je l' ai vu s' en servir. = I have seen him taking some of it.
Je l' ai vu s' y aller. = I have seen him go there.
