A question for ADS scholar/authorities: "Myself" as subject and/or object in everyday sentences? It's seeming to proliferate.  Recent examples (November 2022): "If you have questions, speak to myself or members of the committee." "Myself and members of the choir will give a concert on..."  Does it reappear in cycles? Thank you for any replies at Thanksgiving time.
