- For Teachers
I'd appreciate your further thoughts on this. You may well have a better command of the language than me.
This sentence, then should also end with I, rather than me, to be correct.
I am not a teacher.
I must honestly say this topic seems to be more complicated than I thought.
Anyway I found this post:

I like the both sentences I marked.
What would be the exact question for this sentence:
I'm taller than John.
Than who am I taller? - Than who is John taller?
Than whom am I taller? - Than whom is John taller?
(Please correct the questions because I believe they are all wrong.)
In my opinion if it's who, we should use I, this means:
John is taller than I
What else I read:
"...than me" sounds correct to most guys, but it seems to be wrong.
"...than I" sounds odd to most guys, but strongly seen (grammatically) it should be correct.
I really would like to know this.
But are you 100% (or let's say 99% ) sure that
B: John is taller than me.
I'm starting to believe that me sounds better but it's grammatically seen not correct...
If you don't want to say taller than me, then don't. Just don't say I am wrong when I say it.
Don't worry, Ron
I just can't believe that no one checked some grammar books.
There must be simple rule.
There's also an Oxford site (or something else) that contains plenty of grammar rules.
I just want to know it
This one has been discussed before. In any case, there is no reason for me to consult anyone or anything on this one.
