Etymology 1

From Middle English I (also ik, ich), from Old English ih (also ic, iċċ (I)), from Proto-West Germanic *ik, from Proto-Germanic *ik, *ek (I), from Proto-Indo-European *éǵh₂ (I).

Cognate with Scots I, ik, A (I), Saterland Frisian iek (I), West Frisian ik (I), Dutch ik (I), Low German ik (I), German ich (I), Bavarian i (I), Yiddish איך (ikh, I), Danish and Norwegian Bokmål jeg (I), Norwegian Nynorsk eg (I), Swedish jag (I), Icelandic ég, eg (I), Gothic 𐌹𐌺 (ik, I), and more remotely with Latin ego (I), Ancient Greek ἐγώ (egṓ, I), Russian я (ja, I), Lithuanian (I), Armenian ես (es, I), Sanskrit अहम् (ahám, I), Hittite 𒌑𒊌 (ūk, I). See also English ich. Doublet of ego and Ich.

Capitalized since 13th century to mark it as a distinct word and prevent misreading and omission (due to cursive writing).

Pronoun

I (first person singular subject personal pronoun, objective me, possessive my, possessive pronoun mine, reflexive myself)

  1. The speaker or writer, referred to as the grammatical subject, of a sentence.
  2. (nonstandard) The speaker or writer, referred to as the grammatical object, of a sentence.
    Mom drove my sister and I to school.
Usage notes
  • The word I is always capitalised in written English. Other forms of the pronoun, such as me and my, follow regular English capitalisation rules.
  • I is the subject (nominative) form, as opposed to me, which is the objective (accusative and dative) form. Me is also used emphatically, like French moi. In some cases there are differing views about which is preferred. For example, the traditional rule followed by some speakers is to use I as the complement of the copula (It is I), but it is now more usual to choose me in this context (It's me).
  • When used in lists, it is often thought better to refer to oneself last. Thus it is more natural to say John and I than I and John. In such lists, the traditional rule is to use the same case form one would choose if there were only one pronoun. Thus, since we say I am happy, we say John and I are happy, but since we say Jenny saw me, so we say Jenny saw John and me. However, one frequently hears John and me are happy, which is traditionally seen as a case error. Similarly, probably as a hypercorrected reaction to this, one can occasionally hear phrases like Jenny saw John and I.

    • a. 1733, Thomas Boston, edited by [Thomas Boston the younger], Sermons and Discourses on Several Important Subjects in Divinity. , volume I, Edinburgh: William Gray, , published 1753, page 333:
      They are called men, becauſe each of them poſſeſſeth the whole man, though not wholly. There are by their means two I’s in every believer, Rom. vii. 15. For that which I do, I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. There is not one part of the man that is in Chriſt, but grace has a part of it, and corruption has a part of it: as in the twilight there is light over all, and darkneſs over all too, the darkneſs being mixed in every part with the light. So my renewed part is I, a man having an underſtanding enlightened, a will renewed, affections ſpiritualized, uſing my body conform: but my unrenewed part is I too, having an underſtanding darkened, a will rebellious, affections corrupted, and uſing my body accordingly.
    • 1873, Henry Ward Beecher, “Paul”, in The Great Bible Renowns, page 45:
      In other words, he said: “I have two natures. I have a flesh nature, an outside nature, and that keeps sinning; and then I have another nature—an inside, a spiritual nature—and that does not like sinning; and with my heart-power, my conscience-power, my love-power, with the power of the divine element that is in me, I look and see what this body outside, which clothes me, is trying to do. And here are two I’s that are fighting. The inside I is arrayed against the outside I; and the outside has the advantage.”

      Who is it that says that ‘I’ is not perceptible? Is there an ignorant ‘I’ and an elusive ‘I’? Are there two ‘I’s in the same person? It is the mind that says that ‘I’ is not perceptible. Where is that mind from? Know the mind. You will find it a myth. / We all feel that there is only one I; not two, one ignorant of the other.
