Grammar Thursday and Life, the Universe and Everything


Ever get confused about which to use--who or whom? It's not as complicated as you might think. Ask yourself a simple question:

Who is doing what to whom?

The one doing the action is the subject: who.  The one being acted upon is the object: whom


This is where I am for three days. I'll chat about it in future posts. 


In the meantime, have a great weekend!

  6. This became glass-clear when I learned a foreign language: German

    "wer" = who in the nominative form
    "wen" = who in the accusative form
    "wem" = whom in the dative form
    "wessen" = whose in the genitive form

  7. I can kind of figure out how to do it when writing prose. But I get confused when writing dialogue, because people don't usually speak in correct grammatical terms. I mean, how many people say whom when they talk? I'm never quite sure what to do in that instance. :-/
