The use of personal pronouns needs to be taken strictly. While me and I are both personal pronouns, they both have different functional uses, and using one in place of the other can cause errors.
You and me or you and I – Which is correct?
The simple answer to this question would be the phrase “you and I”. This is especially the case when we are talking about you and I as the subject of a clause. In such a case, the word me will stand grammatically incorrect. However, in some instances, when the pronouns are considered the object of the clause, the term me can come into play without causing grammatical errors.
So, the basic understanding of the answer is that the pronoun I and me are used in two different contexts. When we refer to ourselves as the subjects of the sentence, we use I because I is a subjective pronoun. That means it is doing something. But when we are referring to ourselves as the object, something being acted upon, we use the word me to use.
Using me in place of I or I in place of me can make the entire sentence wrong. While you and me sound quite correct and familiar, in subjective cases, it is absolutely incorrect.
