I have some questions. Hope you all can help me to understand.
While it is clear that stress pronoun is always after another noun, how do we decide the order if there are 2 stress pronouns together?
“toi et moi” or “moi et toi”
“toi et elle” or “elle et toi”
“moi et elle” or “elle et moi”
Is it the same as English when first-person related pronouns always come last (You and I, him and me) and second-person related pronouns always come first (you and him, You and I)?
Thank you in advance.
The order is not set by grammar but by context and politeness to name oneself last, mostly.
Thanks Chris. I think it makes sense to put “moi” behind. How about “toi” vs “elle/lui/eux...”? Is it also more polite to put “toi” first as the person is right in front of you?
Thank you for answering. I haven’t spoken enough French to encounter such context.
I don't think you'd go far astray if you apply the same rules as in English regarding the order of stress pronouns.
