Who or Whom : Grammar and Spelling Tips




Strictly speaking, it is correct to use
who as the subject of a verb and whom as the object.


Examples:


• Who saw you?


• Whom did you see?


It is also strictly right to use whom after a preposition.


• To whom were you talking just now?


In practice, few people follow this rule. Most use who all the time and a sentence like the following one can sound too formal.


• To whom were you talking?
