So if kendi kendime is 'by myself' (from the Ts&Ns) and kendi kendine is 'by (or to) yourself', would you say: kendi kendisine or kendi kendine for 'by himself/herself', kendi kendimize for 'by ourselves', etc.?

(And would someone mind explaining the difference between kendi and kendisi, please?)

This seems like "Yourself is talking to yourself." Couldn't you say Seni kendine konuşuyorsun. or, just Kendine konuşuyorsun. ?

I thought konusmak fiil always takes "ile" why not "Kendi kendinle konusuyorsun" ??

Would "kendinle konuşuyorsun" be a valid trabslation for this?

Why "kendi kendine" ? Kendine, I understand, but why must we add kendi to kendine ? Kendine alone is quoted wrong.
