“I” or “me”?
The two personal pronouns I and me are often used wrongly, usually in sentences in which I is being used with another noun. Here are some tips to help you get it right:
- Use the pronoun I, along with other subjective pronouns such as we, he, she, you, and they, when the pronoun is the subject of a verb:
- Use the pronoun me, along with other objective pronouns such as us, him, her, you, and them, when the pronoun is the object of a verb or preposition:
|√ I am going for coffee||X Me am going for coffee|
|√ Rose and I went for a coffee||X Rose and me went for a coffee|
|√ Rose spent the day with me||X Rose spent the day with I|
