Definitions and meaning of me

me

Etymology 1

From Middle English me, from Old English (me, originally dative, but later also accusative), from Proto-Germanic *miz (me), from Proto-Indo-European *(e)me-, *(e)me-n- (me). Cognate with Scots me (me), North Frisian me (me), Saterland Frisian mie (me), Dutch me, mij (me), Low German mi (me), German mir (me, dative), Icelandic mér (me, dative), Latin (me), Ancient Greek μέ (), ἐμέ (emé, me), Sanskrit मा (, me).

Pronunciation

  • (UK) enPR: , IPA(key): /miː/
  • (US) enPR: , IPA(key): /mi/
  • Rhymes: -iː
  • Homophone: mee

Pronoun

me (first-person singular pronoun, referring to the speaker)

  1. As the direct object of a verb.
  2. (obsolete, proscribed) Myself; as a reflexive direct object of a verb.
  3. As the object of a preposition.
  4. As the indirect object of a verb.
  5. (US, colloquial, proscribed) Myself; as a reflexive indirect object of a verb; the ethical dative.
  6. As the complement of the copula (be or is).
  7. (colloquial, with and, proscribed) As the subject of a verb.
  8. (nonstandard, not with and) As the subject of a verb.
Usage notes

Me is traditionally described as the accusative pronoun, meaning it should be used as the object of verbs and prepositions, while the nominative pronoun I should be used as the subject of verbs. However, "accusative" pronouns are widely used as the subject of verbs in colloquial speech if they are accompanied by and, for example, "me and her are friends". This usage is traditionally considered incorrect, and "she and I are friends" would be the preferred construction.

Using me as the lone subject (without and) of a verb (e.g. "me want", "me like") is a feature of various types of both pidgin English and that of infant English-learners, and is sometimes used by speakers of standard English for jocular effect (e.g. "me likee", "me wantee").

Although in the spoken version of some dialects 'me' is commonly used as a possessive, in writing, speakers of these dialects usually write my.

Some prescriptivists object to the use of me following the verb to be, as in "It wasn’t me". The phrase "It was not I" is considered to be correct, though this may be seen as extreme and used for jocular effect.

Synonyms
  • (subject of a verb): I; my ass (vulgar or slang)
  • (complement of the copula): I
  • (indirect object): us (Australia, UK)
  • (marking ownership): my; mine (archaic)
