A common grammar mistake that I hear by Quebecois is “me I.”
In Quebec French it is considered acceptable to say, “moi je.” Quebecois use this spoken expression to emphasize something. In English it is not acceptable to say, “me I.” It doesn’t work because you are using a subject and an object pronoun both as subjects.
A sentence usually has a subject and an object pronoun.
e.g. I like her.
- I > is a subject pronoun
- Her > is an object pronoun
- Her could be replaced by a name, so the sentence could be, ” I like Jenn.”
- The pronoun replaces the name.
Next time you’re talking in English make sure you avoid this grammar mistake.
