I'm not sure which of the following sentences is correct. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
We writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.
Us writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.
Yunusi supposed you wanted to say our writersNo, not really. What I want to say is:
You and I are writers, and we (us?) writers are probably the most demanding users when it comes to word processors.
YoHf:It's "we", not "us", 'cause "we" is the subject of the sentence.
Hope this helps.
we and writers here refer to a same idea.(2 people)
It's a good structure to use.
"We writers" is correct because, as YoHf said, "We" is the subject of the sentence. If you weren't using the word "writers", you would say "We think...", and that is how you say it even with the word "writers" in there.
On the other hand, when the writers become the object of the sentence, you have "us writers". "They were displeased by the conduct of us writers".
I hope that helps.
People are waiting to help.
