Me

conj. butEtymology: . men
pron. indef. a man, one, people —see Men
Me, I.—“Is it me you mean?” Say “is it I?” or “do you mean me?”

pro. The objectionable case of I. The personal pronoun in English has three cases, the dominative, the objectionable and the oppressive. Each is all three.

Me, My.—“In consequence of me neglecting.”—“The horse got away in consequence of me neglecting to fasten the gate.” Say “in consequence of my neglecting,” etc.

me or my going : Erroneous combinations sometimes used by persons careless with their diction. Do not say “Instead of me (or my ) going to London I went to Bermuda”; say, rather, “Instead of going....” Here “me” and “my” are redundant.

me : “It is I,” never “It is me.” And so with all personal pronouns following the verb to be and in apposition with its subject. The same form of error is constantly made in such phrases as “She is better looking than me,” where, if the elliptical verb were supplied, the correct construction would readily be seen to be “She is better looking than I (am).”
