Who Versus Whom
Today's topic is "who" versus "whom." I've received many requests from listeners to cover this topic. Here's Noreen: I just wondered if possibly in one of your episodes you could go through the use of who versus whom. I think that's a common misunderstanding with many people who write. And an unnamed caller: "Who" and "whom": that's always a tough one. "Who" or "Whom"? So here we go. First, to know whether to use "who" or "whom," we need to talk about the difference between subjects and objects because you use "who" when you are referring to the subject of a clause and "whom" when you are referring to the object of a clause. I know: subject and object sound pretty abstract, but it's easy. Still having a hard time remembering? Just "Whom" I love you. OK. For example, it is "Whom did you step on?"
