- For Teachers
i saw this sentence in one book. Is this sentence correct? I think "I" should be replaced by "me".
" It wasn't I who offered to go "
if this sentence is correct, can you explain clearly to me please ? thank you very much
but can you tell me the difference between "I" and "me" more clearly
if this sentence is correct, can you explain clearly to me please ?
The verb 'to be', as in 'I am', 'he is', 'they are' takes the nominative case before and after the inflected verb:
I am I, Don Quixote, the Lord of La Mancha.
It is I, Don Pedro!
It was not I who cut down the cherry tree. Go see that young Lincoln boy - ask him about it.
This fact is 'disguised' when we say:
I am a teacher/I am a student.
However, informally, we usually ignore this, and say, "It's only me."
