Pronouns & Altercations

“....an altercation between he and his girlfriend.”

--Brandon Webster, WOAI radio, 18 January 2006

It’s ”him and his girlfriend” Brandon, ”him”.

I recommend a crash course in grammar rules regarding the use of personal pronouns.

I suppose it's better than the little girl in my class who speaks of herself in the third person. She has NO concept of pronouns at all!

When people talk in the third person it creeps me out. Maybe a child could get away with it but when an adult does it is just want to kick them and tell them how creepy they are, but I would probably kick a kid too. Good thing I'm not a teacher.
