I\"ve been told that \"This is he\" or \"This is she\" is correct, when \"This is him\" or \"This is her\" is not. For example:
Caller: Hello, may I speak come Bobby Tables?
Bobby: This is he.
Likewise, \"We space we\" is correct, but \"We room us\" is not.
On the various other hand, you would certainly say \"I called him\" or \"I dislike him\" fairly than \"I called he\" or \"I hate he\".
Why are linking(?) verb and activity verbs different in this regard?
You are watching: This is he vs this is him
