should this be for whomever?
Whom is the object of a preposition. Who is the subject, the person doing the action. Examples of usage: Who wrote the essay? Who is the subject. Wrote is the verb. Essay is the object.
Whom shall I call? I is the subject. Call is the verb. Whom is the object. (I shall call whom?)To whom is the party to which I am speaking? I(subject is doing the action.) (Whom is the person, or thing, being acted upon, or receiving the action) I am speaking to whom? Is that confusing enough?
Whom is a stuffy sounding word. Generally, people don't use it in speech. If you are writing dialogue, I would suggest using Who, instead of Whom. Hope this is helpful.
