m', s' ,t'

I see this in front of some verbs and want to know how they are used. I know 《m'》 means 《myself》s' 《himself》 and I forgot what 《t'》 means. If you help me, you will be rewarded with 15 lingots.

T is for yourself.

Ça m'appartient. It belongs to me.

Ça t'appartient. It belongs to you.

Ça lui appartient. It belongs to him. Or

Il s'est coupé. He cut himself.

Tu t'es coupé. You cut yourself.

Je me suis coupée. I cut myself.


Some verbs are reflexive. This means that in order for them to work, they need to have the reflexive pronoun in front. For example:
Je me lève = I get up.

NOTE: Reflexive verbs all take 'être' as the auxiliary. This means that, in the perfect tense, instead of using 'avoir', like in "J'ai mangé", you would use 'être' for example, "Je me suis levé"

These pronouns can also be used to refer to the object in the sentence.
For example: Je t'aime = I love you.

Hope this helps!
