have always been aware, as Milner is (1978: 83-84), that in so-called "indirect reflexive" use, SE and its possessive SUUS appear in reference to a contextually given entity that is distinct from the verbal subject.
All handbooks agree in pointing out that this (indirect) violation of strict reflexivity is much more common with the possessive SUUS than with the personal pronoun SE; the same holds with respect to the Spanish tonic form si (overwhelmingly used in prepositional phrases), whose referential latitude has always been (Garcia 1997) much greater than that of the clitic se.
La formula SUUS se usaba unicamente cuando el poseedor era sujeto de la clausula que contenia el posesivo; al principio, por tanto, se trataba solo de una forma reflexiva.
