Learn English – “I’ll listen to any concerns you or him may have.” Which pronoun do I use here, “he” or “him”

coordinationgrammargrammatical-casepersonal-pronounssubjects

I had a question about possession. I wrote the sentence:

He may need to stay for a while, therefore I’ll listen to any concerns you or him may have.”

Is it him or he? Because it sounds natural to say him.

Best Answer

The way to test pronoun case in "x or y" or "x and y" constructions is to try the sentence with just x or just y:

  • "… therefore I'll listen to any concerns him may have."
  • "… therefore I'll listen to any concerns he may have."

Which pronoun sounds right to you? Use that pronoun even when naming "x or y" or "x and y."
