He, you and I will go for a movie tomorrow.

How to rearrange the pronouns in the best possible manner?

1 Answer 1


Normally, you comes first, hence

You, he, and I will go for a movie tomorrow.


When more than one personal pronoun is used with a verb, the order is normally: 3rd or 2nd person before 1st person; 2nd person before 3rd person.

She and I do not get on very well.

You and he should buy the boat between you.

    That is quoted from the guide you can retrieve from the link and is an illustration that 2nd person comes before 3rd person. Apr 29, 2021 at 10:29

    Buying something "between" two or more people means that each person pays part of the cost, and usually becomes part-owner (unless they're buying a gift etc).
