    As the object of a verb or a preposition, me finds its home. :D

    What about, Me, too? It's short form for a very long-winded sentence,

    As for me, I, too, agree/do that.

    Americans use baggage.
    English use laggage.

    May I resurrect this topic?

    I'm under the impression that (in the US) luggage tends to be used when you refer to empty baggage. So in a department store, you say "a luggage department", and in an airport, you say "a baggage claim".

    Is this a wrong generalization?

    English Sunday :D

    luggage = more than one bag; a set of bags; never one bag :D
    baggage = bag or bags or luggage :D

    Do you have any luggage? (OK)
    Do you have any baggage? (OK; ambiguous, though, and hence the use of 'luggage' these days.)
