"All students including myself live in a permanent state of..."Should it be 'including me'? But '....me live in a ..' isn't right either.So does it need commas to make it right? All students, including me, live in...Or should I just leave 'myself'?TIA
"Me" is the object of "including" rather than the subject of "live" so it is fine in this sentence I think.
All students, including me, ..
Isn't myself normally preceded by a preposition? For myself for e.g.
I hate the proliferation of "myself" in the wrong context. I blame The Appentice. "Who was responsible for choosing the concept?""That was myself, Lord Sugar.". No, it was YOU, not YOURSELF.
I would use me.
Both versions sound a bit odd so I would miss out 'including myself/me' and just put 'all students live in....', unless of course you need to mention yourself??
Mardy the use of 'myself' was discussed recently here www.mumsnet.com/Talk/pedants_corner/1576853-WIBU-to-correct-someones-use-of-English-after-half-an-hour-of-ourselves-and-yourself-angry It's an abomination.But that aside... thanks all. (Hen I didn't write it - I'm not a student!)
