2 comments on “The death of “whom”?

  1. Considering that absolutely no nouns in English are marked for accusative, and considering that not even all pronouns do it (“you” is subject and object), how is the loss of whom a “downward spiral in the quality” of English? Why can’t this be a regularization or optimization of English? It fits the existing patterns, and there are absolutely no serious arguments to be made that this make things less precise or more confusing. Maybe you just like yelling at the kids to get off your lawn? 🙂

  2. Like the overall look of your blog. Really like the way you have touched on different topics related to languages. We here love languages as well.
