    an object that you use to help you do something

    In the OALD, it writes:

    aid
    noun

    an object, a machine, etc. that you use to help you do something
    -----
    If I say 'an object, a machine, etc. that you use to help yourself do something', is it also acceptable?

    Re: an object that you use to help you do something

    Could you tell me more?

    For example, it is correct that 'Be careful with that knife or you'll cut yourself!', but why is 'an object, a machine, etc. that you use to help yourself do something' wrong?
