When referring to groups of pronouns connected by and or or (Martin and I, you and I, he or she...)
, in French we always use stress pronouns
:moi, toi, lui, elle, nous, vous, eux, elles
Note also how in French, the pronoun is always in second place.
Note: In English we use Pronom sujet (John and I went to the cinema) or Pronom d'objet (Mary invited John and me to the wedding) according to their role in the sentence.
French cannot use subject pronouns or object pronouns with these conjunctions, but rather requires stress pronouns (Pronom disjonctif).
