me vs. myself

  • November 17, 2014, 6:57am

I can't believe we are arguing this. Me is a subject pronoun. Myself is reflexive. Therefore "me" is the correct answer. Common usage does not change the fact that using "myself" as a subject pronoun is wrong. On the other hand, the language is moribund anyway... Another truth is that "myself," "himself," "herself," "itself," and "themselves," can be perceived as adverbial, but in actuality are not. They should only be used for reflexive emphasis. You're welcome.
