Daily Prompt – Fireside Chat. What person whom you don’t know very well in real life — it could be a blogger whose writing you enjoy, a friend you just recently made, etc. — would you like to have over for a long chat in which they tell you their life story?
This prompt prompts me to ask a grammar question. Is the prompt using the word whom correctly?
“What person whom you don’t know very well in real life…”
Shouldn’t one use who? Isn’t there suppose to be a preposition when you use whom? I thought I had whom down.
I’d better have Grammar Girl (Mignon Fogarty) over for a fireside chat. She could summarize her life story (is it life’s story?), then we could talk about whom and other grievous errors.
Irregardless, it’s time for IDOL. I gotta go.
