People often make mistakes in “Name and I or Name and me”. In this article, we will see which one is correct.
Name and I or Name and Me – Which one is correct?
A name of a person is a noun. So whenever a noun and a pronoun are joined by the conjunction ‘and‘ and used as a subject of the sentence then the pronoun used is in the nominative case. Hence, ‘Name and I‘ is correct whereas ‘Name and me‘ is incorrect. It is because ‘I‘ is in the nominative case whereas ‘me‘ is in the objective case.
- Junaid and I go for walk every morning. (Correct)
- Junaid and me go for walk every morning. (Incorrect)
- Ayesha and I play football every day. (Correct)
- Ayesha and me play football every day. (Incorrect)
In the above examples, ‘Junaid’ and ‘Ayesha’ are the names of the persons and hence the noun. Therefore, the nominative case i.e. ‘I‘ pronoun is used.
What is a noun?
A noun is a naming word used to identify a person, place, or thing. Nouns are the most frequently used words in English. They can be singular or plural. A singular noun refers to one instance of something (e.g., apple), while a plural noun refers to more than one instance of something (e.g., apples).
Nouns can be concrete (things you can see) or abstract (things you cannot see). They can also be countable or uncountable. Countable nouns are those that have both singular and plural forms, such as house and houses, while uncountable nouns do not have a plural form, such as sugar and water.
- The boy went to school.
- The girl played with her doll.
Nouns can be singular or plural and they can be masculine or feminine depending on what they refer to. For example:
- She is a teacher. (singular and feminine)
- They are students. (plural and masculine)
In English, nouns have three genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter. Each gender has its own set of endings when it is used in a sentence as part of a proper name or as an adjective describing another noun. The most important thing to remember about noun endings is that they always match the last letter of the root word plus any additional letters added due to other suffixes attached to it (such as “-ed” for past tense).
