I believe you're getting the idea. These purely pronominal verbs express an idea that is different than the regular, non-pronominal, form of the verb. The English translation needs to be memorized, as there is no pattern. These verbs can seem idiomatic in nature, so some folks call them idiomatic pronominal verbs.

Don't confuse purely pronominal verbs with the two other types of pronominal verbs-the reflexive and the reciprocal.
All three types of pronominal verbs use the reflexive pronouns.

@Michal: Check the link I included in my previous post, to the thread where I gave some examples of the main uses of suffix "-se" in pronominal verbs.
