    Which is the correct pronoun?

    I am I/me and you are you.

    Which is the correct pronoun? Is the sentence natural?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Which is the correct pronoun?

    I disagree, and favour "I am me," if one must try this type of structure. (Cf. "This is he," an inversion.)

    Re: Which is the correct pronoun?

    Hello, I am 'The French',
    I am sure that the both forms are correct.
    You can write 'I am I' or 'I am me', the second form it's better but the first it's good too.
    'I am I' is most used in written English perhaps not in American (I don't know), and 'I am me' it's often used in spoken language.
    I think just one teacher can enlighten us about this matter.
    Have a nice day.

    Re: Which is the correct pronoun?

    Hello it's again 'The French',
    Sorry I made a mistake the more correct form is 'I am I'.
    Bye.
