Subjective Vs. Objective

In English Subjective refers to the subject of the sentence. For example, in the sentence "He went with me to the store," the word He is the subject and in the subjective position. Objective refers to the object of the sentence. In the above example me is in the objective position and thus is the object of the sentence.

Confusion sometimes occurs when a subject pronoun is inserted in an objective position, such as in this misuse example: "If you have a problem, see Beth or I." Leave Beth out to get the correct objective form and you will naturally replace the I with the correct objective form me. The subjective pronouns include words such as: he, she, they, we; objective pronouns include: me, her, him, us.
