Subjects' order

Question

Bernard M

Hi,

Is there any order to respect when there are several subjects ?

For example, do we say :

I and Stella had been dating for ...

or 

Stella and I had been dating for ...

Thank you for your help.

Bernard

Hello Bernard,

Yes, it's better to start with the other person/people and put 'I' at the end.

Best,

Minoo

I have rarely come across this. I think we usually repeat the name.

If you absolutely want to avoid the repetition of the name, both sound o.k. to me. It would perhaps be better to start with 'he' to keep it close to the name 'in the previous sentence that 'he' is replacing.

Best,

Minoo
