Common Errors in English Usage: Us and We

Last but not least today, here is a worksheet on differentiating us and we when writing sentences with these two first-person plural pronouns. As you can see, the work here involves, basically, understanding the difference between the nominative and objective cases when using personal pronouns. Like any of the documents that you find on this blog under the header Common Errors in English Usage, the supporting text for this worksheet is derived from Paul Brians’ book of the same name, which he has generously made available at no cost at the Washington State University website.

This worksheet contains Professor Brians’ text with ten modified cloze exercises to give students a chance to try their hand at using these pronouns. As always, or almost always, this document is formatted in Microsoft Word, so you can alter it to your class’s needs.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
