  1. Reciprocal pronoun

    The reciprocal pronouns in English are one another and each other. Together with the reflexive pronouns — myself, yourself, ourselves, yourselves, and others — they are classified as anaphors. Reciprocity is the broader concept, of which reflexivity is a special case. Reciprocity has A relating to B and B relating in exactly the same way to A. Reflexivity is the concept of A reciprocating with itself. ⁕Reciprocal: A↔B = A→B and A←B = A→B and B→A ⁕Reflexive: A↔A = A→A and A←A = A→A and A→A = simply A→A Examples: ⁕Reciprocal: They all said "Hello" to one another. ⁕Reflexive: All alone, he had no friends but himself. The classical Greek reciprocal pronoun was allēlōn. From this stems the word parallel: para allēlois "beside each other".
