    comparative sentences

    Hi there!

    When should I use a subjective pronoun, and when an objective pronoun after "then" in comparative sentences?
    e.g.
    He was taller than she (was?)
    or
    He was taller than her

    Thanks

    I think you could you both ways, the second one is more common.
    You would have to use Subject pronouns to avoid vagueness as in :" I know him better than her" _ " I know him better than SHE does" ( different meaning).
