Look at what I did on related ones. Of course "This is she" is correct.

There is an assimilation to I in the sentence

Don't you think I just love arg?

Here's what I wrote:

"Me" as an object, "My" as a possessive or before a gerund (articular infinitive), and "I" as a subject[ or vocative, as in titles.] So it's "Dupree, You, and I."

Get that lesson on first person singular forms?

Collapse the genitive into "my."

And also, note wher I put my periods!

Here's what Arg wrote:

"Greg and I" is the correct phrase to use. We use "I" as a subject and "me" as an object. "I" is the answer to the question "Who?" and "me" is the answer to the question "whom?". Example: Who ate the pizza? I ate the pizza. For whom is the pizza? The pizza is for me. Therefore, since the caption tells people who are in the picture, you should use "Greg and I". Just my opinion :)

I admit it. I agree with Arg. "I" in the vocative.

The best words I can think of tie: "semi-intermittently" and "intermittently."

Here's what I just wrote:

Here's the bottom excerpt of what someone else wrote:

If I knew your seventh-grade English teacher, I'd slap her upside the head, too. In the latter sentence, "it" is the subject, and "me" is the object of the preposition "for," and thus takes the accusative case. In the former sentence, both "it" and "I" are subjects in the clause "It is I." If anyone disagrees with me, would like to yell at me, or slap me upside the head, please holler back and I'd be glad to shoot down your protests.

It is I for whom you are looking.

No prepositions at the end of a sentence. Also, pleas note THAT "It is I" IS CORRECT. Also, SO TOO IS "It's I" CORRECT!
