How to write "me something"?

Spelling the particle “something” often presents difficulties for those who do not clearly remember the spelling rules. How to write - “I am that” or “I am something”? Let's figure it out.

Particle "something"

With personal pronouns ("I", "you", etc.), the particle "-to" is written with a hyphen and is used to underline the word emotionally.

For example: “I know where Vasya was yesterday!” Or: “What can you understand about this?” Or: “They have already moved to Moscow for a long time”.

Particle “that” and dash

There are situations in which the personal pronoun and the particle “that” are not written with a hyphen, but are separated by a dash. We are talking about sentences in which “that” is used as an index word. For example: "I am what I read." Or: "You are what you eat."

Such constructions are easily recognized by substituting the verb “is” between the pronoun and the particle “that”. For example: "I am what I read." Or: "You are what you eat." If the substitution of the verb “is” does not distort the meaning of the sentence, it means that there is a case in front of you when a dash is put between the pronoun and the “something”, and not a hyphen.

“That” as an index word can be used together with “I” and in other cases. For example:

“What task did you do, this or that?”- “I did the task, and what are you?”.

In this case, neither a hyphen nor a dash is put between “I” and “that”.
