FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What’s another way to say me?

We don’t traditionally think of me as having synonyms, but there are several situations in which it can replace—or be replaced with—another word, phrase, or series of words.

I

Perhaps the most common way in which me is used in place of another word is in very informal situations when it’s used instead of I, as in Me and Greg are going hiking on Saturday. Such sentences are considered grammatically incorrect, but they’re very common in casual speech.

It’s also commonly used after linking verbs (like is and was) in sentences like It’s me or as an alternative to the awkward-sounding It is I (or This is he or This is she). These kinds of constructions are especially common in situations when identifying yourself at someone’s door or on the phone, or perhaps when pointing yourself out in a photo (Hey, that’s me!). Though considered informal, this use of me is much more widely accepted.

myself

The word myself is sometimes used in place me or I, especially in cases in which there is a compound subject, object, or complement (meaning one that has more than one person or thing), as in She wanted John and myself to take charge or The event was planned by Kim and myself. 

Myself is also sometimes used in place of me after the words as, than, and but, as in I realized there were no candidates older than myself. 

Me is sometimes used in place of myself in a particularly informal dialectal use in the U.S., as in I have got to get me one of those!

my

Sometimes, me is used where the word my could also be used, such as in sentences like this: Did you hear about me getting promoted? Historically, it was considered more proper to use my before gerunds (e.g. getting in the preceding example), but using me is now more common and often sounds more natural.

Me is sometimes used in place of my in a particularly informal dialectical use in the U.K. and other places, as in I’ll collect me things and be on me way. 

slang synonyms for me

There are a few creative, informal ways of referring to oneself. One common one is yours truly, which is often used as a way to end a letter before signing your name, but can also be used in place of me, myself, or I in certain cases, as in I’m hoping there’s some left for yours truly. Other phrases can be used in the same way, such as this guy.
