Here are some I and Me examples and errors we often commit when using this.

I AND ME EXAMPLES – These are the common errors and mistakes people often commit when using “I” and “Me” in a sentence.

Both first-person singular pronouns are “I” and “Me”. These terms are used to determine oneself or talk about myself without mentioning my name. Using your actual name in a casual or any conversation can actually be awkward. Now, what’s the difference between the two?

SEE: How To Use I and Me In A Sentence

Accordingly, you use “I” in a sentence as the subject pronoun. Where the “I”, the subject, is the one doing the verb.

Examples:

  1. I am studying for a Math test tomorrow.
    “I” is the subject and “I” is doing the action word or verb “studying”.
  2. I can speak both English and Tagalog fluently.
    “I” is the subject and “I” is doing the action word or verb “speak”.

“Me” in a sentence as the object pronoun. Where the “Me” is the one receiving the action.

Examples:

  1. KC gave Sarah and me her tickets to the concert.
    KC is the subject and the “me” is the one receiving the action answering the question: “Whom has KC given her tickets to?”
  2. This watch is for me.
    “Me” is the answer to question “for who” as the on receiving the action or in this sentence, receives something.

COMMON ERRORS:

  • Lovely and [me] got to school late.
    In this sentence, there are two subjects “Jack and me” but the use of “me” is inappropriate. As mentioned, “I” is the subject pronoun, thus, the right way to put this is: Lovely and [I] got to school late.
  • The object was thrown at my sister and [I].
    In this sentence, “I” was used as the one receiving the action which is inappropriate. As mentioned, the object pronoun is “me”, so, the right sentence is: The object was thrown at my sister and [me].
  • Mike and [me] are best friends.
    The error in this sentence is that “Me” was used to refer a subject when in fact, “Me” should be used as object pronoun. Since “Mike and me” are the subjects, the right sentence should be: Mike and [I] are best friends.
