B. When using the construction c'est/ce sont followed by the disjuncie pronoun and a clause, be sure that the verb of the clause agrees in gender and number with the disjunctive pronoun.
C'est moi qui suis en retard.
Ce sont elles qui prennent l'autobus.
C'est nous qui voyageons ensemble.
C'est vous qui conduisez.
B. To Emphasize a Single Element of the Sentence: In French, emphasis cannot be placed on a single element of the sentence with voice inflection as is done in English because each element of a sentence receives equal stress. Emphasis can be achieved by the addition of a disjunctive pronoun or by using the construction c'est or ce sont followed by the appropriate disjunctive pronoun.
Moi, je ne l'ai pas vu.
Je ne l'ai pas vu, lui.
Ce n'est pas moi, qui l'ai vu.
C'est lui que j'ai vu.
A. As Compound Subject or Object: The disjunctive pronouns are moi, toi, lui/elle, nous, vous, eux/elles. Compound subjects and objects may be composed of two or more disjunctive pronouns or a combination of nouns and pronouns. In such cases, the noun precedes the pronoun.
Charles et moi, nous allons au cinéma.
Nous avons invité Pierre et elle.
Eux et elles viennent aussi.
Vous et lui, vous pourrez nous accompagner.
C. After a Preposition: Remember to replace the object of any preposition except à (+ person or thing) or de (+ thing) by the appropriate disjunctive pronoun.
-Vous parliez de Marie?
-Oui, on parlait d'elle.

-Qu'est-ce que vous pensez d'eux?
-Ses amis sont très gentils.
B. A disjunctive pronoun stressing a subject can be placed either at the beginning or at the end of the sentence. A disjunctive pronoun used to stress an object is placed only at the end of the sentence.
Moi, je ne l'ai pas vu.
Je ne l'ai pas vu, moi.

Elle l'a vu, lui.
Nous les avons rencontrés, eux.
