stumbling over a specific who/mever case
Hello! There are a few lines of dialog in a comic I'm workoing on that are giving me trouble when I attempt to figure the proper usage of whom/whoever based on the grammar rules I've been reading. Here is the dialog:
A: She seems happy -- don't you think Egglinton would want us to continue?
B: Oh, I'm sure he would... who(m)ever the cost.
Any help in this specific case (and ideally some explanation of why, so I don't run into this again) would be powerfully appreciated!
Hero of the day
