John and ‘I’ or John and ‘me’?
Should I use ‘I’ or ‘me’? This is a question many people ask when they have to include themselves into a sentence. Well here’s a trick:
According to Oxford Dictionaries, you should use ‘I’ when the pronoun is the subject of a verb:
‘John, Mary and I are going to have a coffee.’ (NOT: John, Mary and me are going to the cinema)
But use ‘me’ when the pronoun is the object of a verb:
‘After the cinema, Mary followed John and me home.’ (NOT: Mary followed John and I home.)
In other words, generally speaking, use I when it is BEFORE a verb and me when it is AFTER a verb.
