* Usage: The traditional rule is that personal pronouns after the verb to be take the nominative case (I; she; he; we; they). Some 400 years ago, me and other objective pronouns (him; her; us; them) began to replace the subjective forms after be. Today, such constructions - It's me. That's him. It must be them - are almost universal in informal speech. In formal speech and in edited writing, however, the subjective forms are used: It must be they. The figure at the window had been she, not her husband. The objective forms have also replaced the subjective forms in speech in such constructions as Me neither. Who, them? and frequently in comparisons after as or than: She's no faster than him at climbing. Another traditional rule is that gerunds, being verb forms functioning as nouns, must be preceded by the possessive pronoun (my; your; her; its; their; etc.): The landlord objected to my (not me) having a dog. In practice, however, both objective and possessive forms appear before gerunds, the possessive being more common in formal, edited writing, the objective more common in informal writing and speech. See also than.

Freebase

  1. Me

    Me is the second album by 1960s British girl singer Sandie Shaw. It was released by Pye Records in November 1965, just eight months after her debut, but unfortunately did not follow its success - though her singles were still selling well. Since the release of the Sandie album, Shaw had gained another three UK Top 10 hits - "I'll Stop at Nothing," the Number One "Long Live Love" and "Message Understood," all of which had been written by Chris Andrews. As with the previous album, Me contained a mixture of Chris Andrews-penned material and cover versions of songs by other artists, as well as a track written by Shaw herself. However the balance of original and remade material was different this time - half of the twelve tracks were written by Andrews, as opposed to the third on the Sandie album, one track by Shaw, and five songs by other artists. Me was later re-issued as a package with Sandie on CD in the 1990s on the RPM label, and then again in digitally remastered format by EMI in 2005 with bonus French versions of "Down Dismal Ways" and "Too Bad You Don't Want Me."
