How To Remember Who Vs. Whom
from Columbia Journalism Review
In the nearly nine years we have been writing this column, we have never explicitly discussed the difference between “who” and “whom.” One reason is that few people care anymore. They haven’t cared for some time. Nonetheless, Jenkins wrote, “For anything approaching formal writing, ‘whom’ clearly will be with us for a good while longer.” The end may be closer than we think. At a recent conference of college media advisers and their students, few that we questioned could correctly cite passages where “whom” had been used correctly or where “who” had been used incorrectly.
