Transcript of Pronouns

He and I OR He and Me??
Pronouns: I (Eye) Vs Me
When do you use "I" and when do you use "me"?
To use the pronouns correctly, you must understand the difference between the two pronouns.

"
I
" =
S
ubject of a verb
"
M
e" =
O
bject of the verb.
IS
VS
MO
I is the first person singular
subjective
pronoun, which means that it refers to the person performing the action of a verb.
I
like sushi.
I
went to the mall yesterday.
According to the test,
I
am a genius.
I
will be a college graduate.
Mike and
I
will be getting married.
Myself is a reflexive pronoun and it can only be used as the
objective
noun when
YOU
are
both
the
subject and the object
.
Me is an
objective
pronoun, which means that it refers to the person that the action of a verb is being done to, or to which a
preposition
refers to.
Boo gave
me
a hug.
The puppy ran up to Mike and
me.
Let's keep this between you and
me.
This confusion usually occurs when you have I/me connected to another pronoun or name with "and" or "or." The conjunctions have
nothing
to do with which pronoun you have to use.
Why the Confusion??
"
Sully and I
will scare some kids."
"The boss scolded
Sully and me
for misbehaving."
Both examples are next to the conjunction “and” but different pronouns are being used. Why?
Hint: Take It Out
The easiest way to decipher the two is to
remove
the other noun from the sentence and see if it still makes sense.
He told John and I/me to get ready
Boo showed (he/him) and (I/me) the correct door.

Boo showed
he
the correct door
(odd)
Boo showed
him
the correct door
(good)
More Than One Pronoun

When you answer the phone and somebody says, “Is Roz there?” Do you answer,

“This is her”
OR
“This is she”
$10 Question
This is She
Since the verb is a
linking verb
, both nouns are considered
subjects.

Who stole the TV? It must have been
they.
Who's there? It is
we.
Good grief, who's confused? It is
I.
That's the traditional rule, but you don't have to go this far!
Practice!

)

him and me
the correct door (perfect)
I called my brother
who (HE)
is a dentist.

myself.
" said by Adam Levine on The Voice

me
the correct door

Let's put them together!
Use he/him in place of who/whom - Which one makes sense?
Rule: Who = Subjective
Whom = Objective
Sully is the one who/whom everyone loves.
Mike is the one who/whom makes me laugh.
