Are you as compulsive as me or I?
I’m not perfect. I make grammar mistakes, too. This post is my attempt to learn from one of my many mistakes.
I wrote “… as compulsive as me” in a Weekly Tip. A kind reader told me I’d made a mistake, I should have written “as I.” I have asked some friends for their opinion on this topic. They all agreed that “I” – not “me” – was correct because the sentence could be completed “…as compulsive as I am.”
Here’s an explanation by David Budin that I found particularly helpful.
