Hello I have two questions.1) When is it correct to use swim/swam/swum or drink/drank/drunk? I have never understood this since school and I have been desperate to ask someone.2) Which of these is correct?: "DH and I" "me and DH" or "DH and me"TIA.
1) I drink, I drank, I have drunk I swim, I swam, I have swum2) DH and I
I can't do the first one, but I can help with the second.If you would say "I", then you say "DH and I" - eg "I went shopping" and "DH and I went shopping".But if you would say "me", then you say "DH and me" - eg "they sent a card to me" and "they sent a card to DH and me"I think "DH and me" is usually the polite way to put it, probably because it puts the other person first, where "me and DH" put yourself first, if that makes sense?
2) depends on context - it depends on whether you would use I or me alone in the sentence.so -DH and I went to the shops (I went to the shops).She gave a present to DH and me (She gave a present to me).
Interesting the similarity of our examples.... must be the effect of Christmas!
Ah I see Many thanks. I feel a bit stupid now I don't understand how I've never got this?
No need for the - you know now. Better to ask and find out than to go ahead not knowing and not caring if you get it wrong.
