Me is traditionally described as the accusative pronoun, meaning it should be used as the object of verbs and prepositions, while the nominative pronoun I should be used as the subject of verbs. However, “accusative” pronouns are widely used as the subject of verbs in colloquial speech if they are accompanied by and: Me and her are friends. This usage is considered incorrect by some prescriptivists.
Some prescriptivists object to the use of me following the verb to be, as in “It wasn’t me.”, considering “It was not I.” to be correct.

mē (personal pronoun)[[Category:Template:lang:la pronouns|me]]
Lingua Franca Nova
- A transliteration of any of a number of Chinese characters properly represented as having the tone, mé.
- 么: interrogative particle; repetition of a tune small; tender
- 沚: islet in stream; small sandbar
- 麼, 麽: interrogative final particle; insignificant, small, tiny
English transcriptions of Chinese speech often fail to distinguish between the critical tonal differences employed in the Chinese language, using words such as this one without the appropriate indication of tone.
From Proto-Germanic *mik-, from Proto-Indo-European *me. Cognate with Old Frisian mi, Old Saxon mī (Dutch mij), Old High German mih (German mich), Old Norse mik, Gothic 𐌼𐌹𐌺. The IE root is also the source of Latin me, Greek με, Old Irish mé (Irish mí, Welsh mi), Proto-Slavic *me- (Old Church Slavonic мене, Russian меня), Lithuanian mi, Albanian mua.
