(o) John and I went to town.
(o) John and we went to town.
(x) I and John went to town.
(x) We and John went to town.
This would be a social custom rather than a grammar rule.
"I believe in Thee, O God! Thou art righteous, and I and My people are wicked, and I acknowledge now that there is no god in the world beside Thee."
Paco2004English has a special sensitivity about using "I" and "we". People don't put "I" or "we" first.Are you sure?
plural, We, you and they ...
singular, You, he and I ...
Is it possible to use "me" instead of "I"? For example, "John and me went to town". Is it correct?
Is it possible to use "me" instead of "I"? For example, "John and me went to town".it's common in my english, i use it every day.
there is a prescriptive rule against it, on the shaky grounds that if you removed 'John and', all that is left is 'me', which would be ungrammatical Standard english:
(1) *Me went to town.
What is your English? British or American?
If you say it's possible to use "me", is it correct to place "me" in the beginning?
"Me and John went to town".
I mean if the mentioned custom works in that case, too.
People are waiting to help.
