Whom

[English grammar: relative pronoun 'whom' // Gramatyka angielska: zaimek 'whom']

Today is the second lesson that will deal with relative pronouns. Let’s look at the sentence below:

As life shows, it's not always the candidate WHOM the opinion polls predicted to win that is in fact elected as new president.

WHOM is used when it is the object of a verb (the opinion polls predicted someone to win). In spoken English WHOM is usually reduced to WHO, so you often end up with such sentences:

This is the girl WHO(M) I met at the party last week. (= I met her) It's ideal to marry the person WHO(M) you love. (= you love him/her) Why didn't you talk to the teacher WHO(M) I told you about? (= I told you about him/her)
