It was quite interesting watching this last night when the question (under 1st Grade Grammer) was posed:

Which is the correct word to complete the following statement?

Matt came to the park with Darcy and __ .
(or something like that)

A) I
B) me
C) myself


It seems that almost everyone picked "A", although the correct answer is "B". This sparked a very heated debate in my loungeroom, as my partner was totally convinced they had this wrong (along with a great number of other people I suspect).

Even though I picked "B", I had to admit I would use "A" in day-to-day conversation because it just sounds "right" (probably because that's what our parents had always drilled into us as children). It was only because I could remember reading somewhere that if you took the other person (Darcy) out of the equation, the statement still had to make sense:

Matt came to the park with I.
Matt came to the park with me.
Matt came to the park with myself.

Of course, with all the anomalies in the English language, it's one of those rules I was second-guessing myself on.... after all, if she and I are going to the park, does that then mean I are going to the park?..... Or is it she and I am going to the park?!!


Think I'll stick to Swedish, or Italian, or something a little simpler! :wink:
