Ah, grasshoppa. When used correctly it is, but when used as the subject to start a sentence, it is incorrect.

Writing: Grammar
Sentences Never Start With 'Me'



One of the most common grammar errors made by people of all ages is to start a sentence with the word "Me."

For example: "Me and my family will be there at 8," or "Me and Josh are going to play baseball."

Now's the time to quit making that mistake. Resolve that you will never goof that way again.

Instead, you refer to yourself second in sentences like that, and usually you should use "I" instead of "me."

For example: "My family and I will be there at 8," or "Josh and I are going to play baseball."

A good way to memorize this is: if you can leave off the other party, and just refer to yourself, then it will be clear that you shouldn't use "me."

For example: "Me will be there at 8," or "Me is going to play baseball."

It sounds terrible, doesn't it? But these are right: "I will be there at 8," or "I am going to play baseball."

It helps a lot to remember the rule that the word "me" never starts a sentence, and when you are talking about more than one person, you usually refer to the other person first, and then yourself, and usually you will refer to yourself as "I" instead of "me."

Now take turns saying aloud a sentence that is wrong, that does start with the word "me," but everybody should write down on the paper the correct wording. Do three together, as a group, and three individually.

By now, you should have the rule down pat! That makes me (not I!!!!) very happy!

Yes, I'm tired of hearing about the dumbing down of America and decided to initiate the dumbing up of America. I try, but I grow weary. It's a thankless job, so your encouragement helps. I love you for that!

I failed high school grammar two years in a row because they tried to teach me English but all I know is Texan.

Now 46 years later I think it's a little too late to try to learn me some English. Give it up boy.
