Big bold signatures are my thing. Step off, poser.

*ahem*

I have never had a problem with judging others for their grammar and spelling.

Take your "language is malleable/not set in stone" hippie bullshit elsewhere.

Nah he does it all the time. I work with him and he does it in front of customers all the time. When he writes he also never uses me, only I.

These are actually correct if you're into rigid rules of the English language. By those same rules, "me" would be incorrect.

"English"

"Language"

Nope. No "me"s
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise

It really annoys me people who get so pedantic about the "ermmm... I think you mean 'and I'".

A) because who gives a fuck, you understand me
and B) because actually no, it's not always 'and I'.

'My girlfriend and I are going to the park' is technically correct (even if you sound like a dick), 'would you like to go to the park with my girlfriend and I' is not.

Well, apparently, to get it correct, you should imagine the sentence without the other party:

"I am going to the park", not "me am going to the park" (lol Tarzan)

On the other hand, "Would you like to come to the park with me", not "would you like to come to the park with I"

On the other hand, "Would you like to come to the park with me", not "would you like to come to the park with I"

Thing is though, without the other party it would be "I are going to the park".

I've heard this rule before, and as much as it gets you the right result (as far as I'm aware) it's like "well yes, of course the sentence sounds wrong if you remove the other party, that's a different sentence. It would sound odd if I did lots of things to it.".

Quote by Bladez22

No, it depends on the sentence.


I must admit, for someone who doesn't care about which is correct I am getting quite pedantic about this haha.

It's X and I blah blah blah

I think, having English as my mother tongue means I know next to nothing about grammar

Not always. The order in which they are mentioned doesn't matter, for one. It could be "I and your sister, and your girlfriend, and your mom" or "your mom, I, your girlfriend, and your sister," or any combination- as long as the correct pronoun is used.

Whether or not the correct pronoun is used (I vs. me) depends on whether or not the person is the object or the subject.

Here are some examples of "correct" sentences.
"Your mom came with me and your sister."
"Your mom came with your sister and me."
"Your girlfriend, I, and your sister came at the same time."

etc.

Maybe he's hinting that the fact that you're a fucking narcissist.

Or maybe he's making a variant of an idiom/adage to mean that there is literally no "me" in " the English language."

a man tells me the word "me" isn't in English language

if a man tells a man the word "me" isn't in English language, does a man speak for all peoples?
