Usage notes

In modern English, object pronouns are often used as subjects in a wide variety of circumstances ("Me and her are friends", "you're as big as me"). In Old English only subject pronouns were used as subjects (except with a small class of verbs such as līcian, mǣtan, and twēoġan, which took dative or accusative subjects with nouns and pronouns alike). Thus "me and her are friends" was and hēo sind frīend, literally "I and she are friends." Other examples: Þū eart swā miċel swā ! ("You're as big as me!", lit. "as I"), Ġē dōþ simle swelċe ġē beteran sīen þonne ("You guys always act like you're better than me", lit. "I"), Is þæt lā? ("Is that him?", lit. "he"), hit eom ("It's me", lit. "I it am").
