The use of “te cansas” looks like reflexive use to me. However, when I consult the dictionary the use is described as pronominal use. Please help me with the difference between pronominal and reflexive use.
A pronominal verb is a verb that uses a pronoun, for example, casarse (to marry), olvidarse (to forget), escaparse (to escape)... but among the pronomiinal verbs there is a subgroup which is the reflexive verbs. These are pronominal verbs using a pronoun but here the subject performs an action upon himself/herself (or their body), for example: lavarse ( to wash yourself), peinarse (to comb yourself), ducharse (to shower yourself)...
I hope this helps,
