Alright, I recognize that this blog entry is going to show my age and stamp me as a curmudgeon, but I can't help myself. I listen to radio a lot and I am wondering whatever happened to the objective first person singular pronoun.
People on the radio must have been corrected so often after saying something like "Larry and me went to the game" that they decided the safe thing to do is eliminate the word "me" from their vocabulary so now we are subjected to phrases such as "between he and I" (wrong on both third person and first person pronoun usage) and "They sent a package to you and I" or "She left a message for you and I."
For me hearing such phrases reminds me of someone scraping fingernails on a blackboard. And that is an appropriate analogy because I remember many times in grade school when I was diagramming sentences on the blackboard in the front of class. I know schools don't teach diagramming sentences any longer so maybe there is a connection with that and why many of us no longer understand sentence structure and the difference between subjective and objective sentence components.
For the record: Subjective Case Objective Case
First Person I, we me, us
Second Person you, you you, you
Third Person he, she, it, they him, her, it, them
I suppose the Queen's English is dying or maybe already dead in many respects, but the understanding and usage of proper English is still a mark of an educated person in my estimation.
