Subject and Object Pronouns (p.477)
Subject Pronouns (p.477) Let’s look at the example sentences for subject pronouns on p. 477 . . .
Subject Pronoun Rules (p.478) Use a subject pronoun when you have a compound subject: NOT: Scottand me went to the movie. x BUT: Scott and I went to the movie. TIP: Try out each pronoun by itself in the sentence to see which one sounds right: Me went to the movie, OR I went to the movie?
Subject Pronoun Rules (p.478) Use a subject pronoun after forms of the verb be: (am, is, was, were, has been, and have been) NOT: It wasme who stole the money. x BUT: It wasI who stole the money. TIP: to avoid these awkward sounding sentences, you can reword them. I stole the money. I was the one who stole the money.
Subject Pronoun Rules (p.478) 3. Use subject pronouns after than or as: NOT: You drive much better than him. x BUT: You drive much better thanhe (does).
Object Pronouns (p.479) Let’s look at the examples of object pronouns on p. 479 . . . When two objects follow a verb, use the object pronoun: NOT: He goes skiing with my sister and I. x BUT: He goes skiing with my sister and me. [Note: this is a complicated example; refer to the second example in the book] TIP: To check which pronoun sounds right, omit (leave out) the first object. He goes skiing with I, OR He goes skiing with me?
