The pronouns, I and me, are sometimes misused, especially when they are needed alongside a noun. I is a subject pronoun, so you should use it if the speaker is part of the subject. “I am going to the store to get some milk.” In this case, the speaker is the subject of this sentence, so you would need to use the pronoun I instead of me. The word, me, is an object pronoun and should be used if the speaker is NOT the subject of a sentence. “My mother is reading a book to me.” In this sentence, mother, is the subject. Since the speaker is NOT the subject, you would use the pronoun me instead of I. Sometimes, the speaker will be used alongside another noun. “Cindy and I love to watch baseball.” The subject in this example includes both Cindy and the speaker. Since the speaker is part of the subject, you would need to use the pronoun, I. The same idea is true whenever the speaker is using another noun alongside themself within the predicate. “A librarian gave Tony and me some advice.” A librarian is the subject of this sentence. The speaker, then, is part of the predicate, so you would need to use the pronoun, me. When the speaker is used alongside a noun, it can be hard to know which pronoun is correct. To better understand which to use, look at the sentence without the other noun. In this example, let’s take out the noun, Tony. “A librarian gave me some advice.” Remember, if the speaker is part of the subject, use the pronoun, I. If the speaker is NOT part of the subject, use the pronoun, me.
