I vs. Me
One of my biggest grammar pet peeves is when people use “I” when they should use “me.” … My favorite is when people let you in on something by starting with “Between you and I…” Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Grammar hack: Use subjective form (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they) if the person is the subject of the verb: She and I ate lunch. You and he left on time.
Use objective form (me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them) if the person comes after a preposition: Between you and me, it’s curtains for her and them.
Apostrophes: For singular ownership, generally add’s; for plural ownership, generally add s’.
Three little letters — not — turn a positive comment (“I like your boots”) to a negative one (“I do not like your boots”). Apart from the fashion critique, what do you notice about the negative statement? The verb changes from like to do like. You need that extra part because “I not like” isn’t proper English. Negative verbs don’t always rely on a form of the verb do. Sometimes have, has, or had does the job. Sentences with a be verb can turn negative without any help at all. ~ Geraldine WoodsSource
The word dollars is a special case. When talking about an amount of money, it requires a singular verb, but when referring to the dollars themselves, a plural verb is required.
Five dollars is a lot of money.
Dollars are often used instead of rubles in Russia.
The words each, each one, either, neither, everyone, everybody, anybody, anyone, nobody, somebody, someone, and no one are singular and require a singular verb.
Each of these hot dogs is juicy.
Everybody knows Mr. Jones.
Either is correct.
Do not be misled by a phrase that comes between the subject and the verb. The verb agrees with the subject, not with a noun or pronoun in the phrase.
One of the boxes is open.
The people who listen to that music are few.
The team captain, as well as his players, is anxious.
The book, including all the chapters in the first section, is boring.
The woman with all the dogs walks down my street.
