- In modern English, object pronouns are often used as subjects in a wide variety of circumstances ("Me and her are friends", "you're as big as me"). In Old English, only subject pronouns were used as subjects (except with a small class of verbs such as līcian, mǣtan, and twēoġan, which took dative or accusative subjects with nouns and pronouns alike). Thus "me and her are friends" was Iċ and hēo sind ġefrīend, literally "I and she are friends."
