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..
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.
Is it Kathy and me or Kathy and I?
If you’re talking about a compound subject (as opposed to object), the correct phrase is “Kathy and I”: Kathy and I told them. If me is used as a subject, it doesn’t really matter which way you decide to be wrong.
Which is correct Bob and I or Bob and me?
The rule here is very simple: the correct word is the one you’d use if there were no “Bob” involved — so “I went to the store” becomes “Bob and I went to the store,” and “She kissed me” becomes “She kissed Bob and me.”
When can you use me instead of I?
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.
Is my brother and I correct grammar?
When we mention ourselves and another person in a sentence, we are told to put the other person first. For example, we might be reminded to say, “My brother and I went to the White House.” Saying “I and my brother went to the White House” is grammatically correct but would sound impolite, or rude.
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”?
Is me and my family correct?
Although “me and my family” is not incorrect, there is a convention of good manners that one should put the other person or people before oneself in a sentence.
Is it contact me or myself?
For example, “if you’d like to attend this event, please contact Charlotte or me to RSVP”. You aren’t the subject and the object of the sentence, so using the reflexive objective pronoun “myself” (e.g., please contact Charlotte or myself) isn’t necessary. The objective pronoun “me” is correct.
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.”
Will and me or Will and I?
In sentence a), Jenny and me/I are the subjects of the verb joined. Therefore, the subject pronoun, I, is considered correct. You will certainly hear native speakers say, “Jenny and me,” and it may be acceptable in spoken English, but most traditional grammarians and English teachers will disapprove.
Is it grammatically correct to say me and someone?
So whether you want to say “Someone and I” or “I and someone,” make sure you’re using it the right way in the sentence, as the subject, and use “me and someone” or “someone and me” as the object.
What is the rule for using I or 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.
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.”
What is correct my sister and I or my sister and me?
Answer: If the phrase “my sister and I” is the subject of a sentence, it is correct. Example: “My sister and I went to the store.” The phrase “me and my sister” is incorrect. If it is the object of a sentence, the correct wording should be “my sister and me.” Example: “My mother gave my sister and me a present.”
