dO YOU STILL USE WHOM?

0

Okay, so I really tried to find this answer on my own because I think I am getting better at grammar now thanks to this website and all the people who answer my questions.  The question is Who versus whom?  There is a website for writers and a lot of people was arguing about this because some people say whom is extinct like a dinosaur and you shouldn’t write it because it sounds ridiculous.  Other people say it is right and you need it in writing more than speaking.  I think I want to use it even if it is old if it is right.  But I don’t know how to use it, I mean when do you say it (whom) and is Who wrong to use?

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet! 'Whom' is very much alive as an objective pronoun.

It is proper as an object of a preposition.

To whom it may concern.

 

It can be a direct object.

Whom do you love?

An anniversary is a great time to show your loved one how much you love him/her by doing something you can send the jewelry ( http://www.mubuy.com/product/oval-shape-red-corundum-925-sterling-silver-ring-for-lady.html )special that the two of you will remember for life.

I think of it like this. If the the answer is he/she the question is who (who did it? He did) if the answer is him/her then the question is whom (with whom are you sitting? I'm sitting with him) or 'who sat next to whom?' (She sat next to her)
