Difference between who and whom #2 (permalink) Thu Aug 04, 2005 9:58 am   Difference between who and whom
 

Hi,

Who is subject and whom is object. That's the main difference. Look at these two sentences.

She is the singer who (subject) works with that group.

She is the singer whom (object) I (subject) I saw on tv.

In the second sentence you can leave out whom and it still makes sense. You will find that whom is more frequently used after prepositions as in: The people for whom I work/That's the person to whom you give the ticket ...

If you go to the esl lessons heading on this site you will find some information and a story I have written on the relative pronoun, which you may find useful.

Alan

Is "many news" completely incorrect?

Hi Dinanrodrig,

If you want to express the idea of plural with 'news', you can say: Many pieces/items of news.'
