English 101

Recently, while reading through several blogs, I found a very common error among them all. I am interested to know how my fellow bloggers would write captions for the following photos. In the comment box, write your answers, if you will. For example: A, B, A. Thanks so much for your input.

What should the caption beneath this photo say?
A) Abbey and I.
B) Abbey and me.


How about this one?
A) Abbey, Randy, and me.
B) Abbey, Randy, and I.


How 'bout this one?
A) Me.
B) I.

I would say,
1) Me and Abby,
2) Me, Randy and Abby,
3) Me.
But anyone who's knows me, knows I'm always different the the rest!! Sorry, Gina

Hi Mary! I've noticed the errors also. I believe it should be A-B-B because the sentence implied is "This is Abbey and I", "This is Abbey, Randy, and I", and "This is I." Always use nominative case after a linking verb- (Sorry- it's just the teacher in me!) Linda
