In previous post we saw that, in Marathi special forms of pronouns are appended with preposition.

The preposition To in English is ला ( lA ) in Marathi. But preposition To is handled bit differently in Marathi.
Special forms are created incorporating ला ( lA ). So no need to add ला ( lA ) again.

e.g. to him in English is त्याला ( tyAlA ) in Marathi. 
Notice this special form already has ला ( lA ) In it. So no need to add ला ( lA ) again.

So full sentence will be
Give it to him -> हे त्याला दे ( he tyAlA de )

 Below table shows these special form for all pronouns

The pronoun for "self" is स्वतः (svatH) and its सामान्य रूप (sAmAnya rUp) is same i.e. स्वतः (svatH). So with preposition "To" form is स्वतःला(svatHlA)
