Yes, they use the same grammar. The main difference is that the first 
one doesn't have a prefix, so ostensibly conforms to the restriction 
given in TKD about prefixes with reflexive suffixes. The second one 
flagrantly violates it. I believe the text of TKD isn't trying to be a 
comprehensive rule about prefixes, but rather describes the fact that 
objects in English like /myself/ and /each other/ aren't objects in 
Klingon but are instead built into the suffix.
