me, my, mine ?

     
     

Question

: Recently I made a sentence " I don't think native speakers find my website interesting unless their English is worse than me ".

I wonder if the ' me ' is used correctly ?  Somehow it doesn't look correct to me.

  It shouldn't look correct. The word should be mine. Thus, the sentence would be:

    I don't think native speakers find my website interesting unless their English is worse than mine.

In that sentence mine means my English. If you need to know what part of speech that is I would say it is a noun but it is also a possessive.

Does my explanation make sense to you?

: She...than I (subject pronoun...than subject pronoun)
She...than me (subject pronoun...than object pronoun *common usage)

Her...than my... (possessive pronoun...than possessive pronoun)

Hers...than mine... (possessive pronoun...than possessive pronoun)

my X = mine. That is, you can reduced the phrase 'my house' to one word, mine. So,

His English is better than my English.
His English is better than mine.
