Transcript of Who vs. Whom

by Ms. Flagler
Who vs Whom
What's the difference?
Subject
vs.
object
of a sentence.
But how does this help with
Who and Whom?
-The subject is the person

DOING
the action.
-Object is the person an action
is
BEING DONE TO
.
Example:
Josh
wrote a letter to
Andrew
.
Subject
Object
Who wrote the letter to Andrew?
Subject = Who
Object = Whom
Josh wrote a letter to whom?
Would you like to know a little trick?
If a sentence is able to use the pronoun
HE:
"He went to the store."

Then the correct usage is
WHO:
"Who went to the store?"
However, if a sentence uses
the pronoun
HIM
:
"Do you love him?"

Then the correct usage is
WHOM:
"Whom do you love?"
Back to the original example:
Josh wrote a letter to Andrew.
What would that sound like with pronouns?
He wrote a letter to him.

It does sound funny; but it is also grammatically correct.
Thus, we are able to correctly identify the right use of who vs whom.

2. Can you identify the pronoun?
3. What is the correct form (Who or Whom)?
