-- Confused by when to use I
and when to use me
? You are not alone!
Many people find these pronouns confusing in certain situations. We all know that I
is a subject pronoun and me
is an object pronoun but there are times when it's easy to lose track of this. Consider the following - which sentences do you think are correct?
1. Why don't you come to the party with my husband and I?
2. Sam and me always vacation in Hawaii.
3. He is taller than me.
4. You should come to the play with Susan and me.
5. Jane and I both love that band.
6. You know her better than I.
Can you tell which sentences are correct and which are incorrect?
Hint: For sentences 1, 2, 4 and 5 - take the second person out of the equation and rewrite the sentence with just the first person pronoun, thus:
Why don't you come to the party with I?
Me always vacation in Hawaii.
You should come to the play with me.
I love that band.
Now it's easy, to tell which ones are correct, no?
For sentences 3 and 6 - imagine how you would complete the sentence, thus:
He is taller than me am.
You know her better than I do.
That should make everything clear! Just use this trick any time you are unsure about first person pronouns.About Prompt Proofing
