Should I use me or myself in a sentence?
“Me” is used as an object.
(Ex: The songs are written by me.) “Myself” is a reflexive pronoun used when you are the object of your own action – i.e., when “you” are doing something to “you.” (Ex: I could write the songs myself, but they sound better when they are written by Barry Manilow and me.).
Which is correct Sally and me or Sally and I?
If this phrase is the subject, then it’s “Sally and I.” If it’s an object, then it’s “Sally and me.” Another way to keep them straight is to think about which first person plural pronoun you would use. If you would use “we,” then it’s “Sally and I;” if you would use “us,” then it’s “Sally and me.”
When to use me in a sentence?
Sometimes it can be tricky to determine if you should be using “me” or “I” in a sentence. Use the pronoun “I” when the person speaking is doing the action, either alone or with someone else. Use the pronoun “me” when the person speaking is receiving the action of the verb in some way, either directly or indirectly.
How do you use I and me in a sentence?
We use I when it is the subject of the sentence – the person doing the action. ✔ Sally and I went to the movies. Me (and us, him, her, you, and them) are also pronouns but they substitute for the object of the verb. They are classed as object pronouns as they are the object or receiver of the action.
Is me and my friend correct?
“Me,” “myself,” and “I.” It’s called a reflexive pronoun. For example, “I made myself breakfast” is correct but not “My friend and myself made breakfast.” But “My friend and I made ourselves breakfast” would be correct. To decide correct usage in a sentence like this: My friend and [“me” or “I”] went to lunch.
Is me and my brother grammatically correct?
The rule of thumb is this — when you would normally say “I” if you were talking about yourself, you would instead say “my brother and I,” but when you would normally say “me” if you were talking about yourself, you would instead say “my brother and me.”
How do I say myself and someone else?
So, to answer your question, you only use “myself and someone else in a sentence” when you are the subject of the verb and you and someone else are also the object: “I made dinner for my wife and myself.”
Is it correct to say myself and John?
Myself and John sat down for a meeting… Send it to John and myself so we can look over it… Nope nope nope. To use ‘myself’ correctly, you should only use it to a) refer back to yourself as the subject of a sentence and b) as an intensifier – i.e., to add emphasis.
Is it grammatically correct to say me and someone?
It is the convention in English that when you list several people including yourself, you put yourself last, so you really should say “Someone and I are interested.” “Someone and I” is the subject of the sentence, so you should use the subjective case “I” rather than the objective “me”.
Does myself come first in a sentence?
Idiomatically, people probably use me or myself more often than I there – but if they do use I, it’s nearly always in the final position (whereas me tends to come first, and myself works fine in either position). It is considered polite when giving a list of people that includes yourself, to put yourself last.
Can I say me and my friend?
For the subject, either “My friends and I” or “I and my friends” is grammatical. The former is preferred because it’s also more polite, placing others first. Your subtext is quite correct: “me” means the object, “I” is the subject. Is it correct to say “me did something”?
When should you say yourself?
Reflexive pronouns are always the object of a sentence, and “myself” is used as the objective pronoun when you are both the subject and the object of the sentence: “I (subject) wrote (verb) myself (reflexive objective pronoun) a note.”
Do you say me and John or John and I?
Both are correct when used appropriately. “John and I,” the nominative form, is used as the subject of a sentence or the subject of a clause. “John and me,” the accusative or object form, is used as the object of a preposition or the direct or indirect object of a verb. “John and I gave him a book.”
Can you ever say me and someone?
Both can be correct. The rule is basically that you use the same form that you’d use if you were the only person involved. If you were talking about ownership of a car, you’d say “That car belongs to me”, or if you shared ownership of it, “That car belongs to my wife and me.”
Is me and her correct grammar?
“Me and her” is correct if it is the object of the verb (or object of a preposition): He gave one to me and her. He saw me and her together. Both “me” and “her” should be in the same case (objective).
