In English: We use subject pronouns, really? Didn't know that.

My daughter and they play together.

I thought it was, " them, " not, " they, " in English. I'm confused. I'd use Hugo and them, never Hugo and they. Huh?

Yes, you are correct. That's as close as you can come to a stress pronoun in English.


My brother and me -- Mon frère et moi.
My brother and I (sounds a bit stilted) -- Mon frère and je (plain wrong).


-- Chris (not a native speaker).
