Transcript of Who/Whom
- same as difference between
subjects and objects
-Who -Whom Definitions Who and whom are Pronouns, therefore they take the place of a Noun.
Who: is a subject Pronoun, it is the person performing the ACTION of the verb
Whom: is an object Pronoun, it is the receiver of the action being done. Examples Who: Blair is the girl who got the job.
-The word "who" is the subject of the verb "to get"
Whom: With whom are you living?
-The word "whom" is not the subject of any verb Rules to remember 1. The word "who" can only be used when it is the subject of a verb.
2. The word "whom" is NEVER a subject of a verb, it is the object.
3. The word "whom" can be used after a preposition.
4. Always remember you can substitute who/whom to he/him . You can also ANSWER the question. If it's he, then you may use WHO. If it's him, you may use WHOM.
> Who= SUBJECT
