In the example “il se fatigua vite mais ils ne fatiguèrent qu’à la fin de la journée” is there a reason why the verb is reflexive in the first phrase, but not in the second?
This is an interesting question and the difference is very subtle -
il se fatigua vite = he got tired very quickly
ils ne fatiguèrent qu'à la fin de la journée = they only tired ( of something they were doing) at the end of the day
The difference is so subtle that i dont get it. Would appreciate more of explanation... Thanks in advance
