Origin

Old English, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch ik and German ich, from an Indo-European root shared by Latin ego and Greek egō.

Usage

Why is it incorrect to say between you and I (rather than between you and me )? Why is it also wrong to say John and me went to the shops (instead of John and I went to the shops )? Should you say she’s much better than me or she’s much better than I ? For a discussion of such questions, see between (usage) and personal pronoun.
