need help with nominative and objective CASE PRONOUNS. these are the ones confusing me...
THE POSTAL WORKER DELIVERED A PACKAGE FOR HARRY AND SHE/HER.
MY GRANDFATHER AND HER/SHE OPERATED A SMALL INN IN VERMONT.
THE COACH PRAISED MANUEL AND HE/HIM.
WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU AND HIM/HE FOR HALF AN HOUR.
YOU MUST TELL YOUR DAD OR ME/I IF YOU WILL BE OUT LATE.
THE ONE WHO TOOK THE EARLY FLIGHT WAS HE/HIM.
Nominative (Subject) pronouns:
I, he, she, they
me, him, her, them
A very simple way to determine which pronoun is used is to simply remove the other name and "and/or."
The postal worker delivered a package for . . . she/ her.
What do you think the others are?
The last sentence is tricky. Since "was" is a linking verb, the pronoun following it must be a nominative pronoun.
I'll be glad to check your answers.
AWESOME...no one ever told me how to check via the method you mentioned above...that helped me out ALOT!! I got it now :)
You're very welcome.
