    • 6. CHOOSING THE CASE OF PRONOUNS Pronouns have forms that show number and person, and they also have forms that show case. The rules for choosing the case of pronouns are simple: 1. When a pronoun is used as a subject, use the subjective case. 2. When a pronoun is used as the object of a verb or the object of a preposition, use the objective case. 3.

(Which one?) Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    • 11. COMMON ERRORS WITH CASE OF PRONOUNS Be careful to avoid these common errors: (p. 531) 1. Between is a preposition, so the pronouns that follow it are objects of the preposition. 2. Never use myself as a replacement for I or me. 3. The possessive pronoun its has no apostrophe. 4. Pronouns that complete comparisons can be in the subjective, objective, or possessive case. 5. Who and whoever are in the subjective case. Whom and whomever are in the objective case.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
