In the sentence: I cut myself, what function does the reflexive pronoun “myself” have in the sentence?

It indicates just what or who was cut, and the reader understands that the speaker was cut. If you didn’t have the reflexive pronoun “myself,” then the sentence would need an object of the verb. This could be “I cut carrots for dinner.” “I cut my finger accidentally.” OR “I cut the flowers for the dinner table.”
