Theoretically - whom

Whom or who (what ever is grammatically correct) would you, if you had too, stalk? I mean, if you were compelled beyond any chance of saying no....who would it be?

You are stalking whom?

The choice depends upon whether it's the subject of the sentence or the object of the verb. The verb is kinda like a pivot.

At the moment, it'd have to be that "13" chic from House M.D... I've started a collage...



I'll have her eyes and liver in my hands soon enough...

Well, stalking generally implies watching from a distance. Preferably out of range of his bass.

You are stalking whom?

The choice depends upon whether it's the subject of the sentence or the object of the verb. The verb is kinda like a pivot.

Sorry, but we have some lovely parting gifts. In both sentences, the correct form is "whom," as it is the object in both cases. The first sentence is a question, so the noun and verb are reversed. Put it in the declarative form--"You are stalking whom"--to see that the pronoun "who/m" is, in fact, the object of the sentence and not the subject.

Contador. Best excuse I can think of for doing a lot of riding, seeing some incredible places in Europe and getting in great shape.

Ok, how about:

Who stalked her?
You are stalking whom?
Who stalks whom?

The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation offers this helpful tip: if you can replace a word with "he" or "she," then it is the subject of the sentence and you should use "who." If you can replace the word with "him" or "her," it is the object and you should use "whom."

Want to tackle me, myself and I??? I find it interesting that for a 50/50 chance between I or me, a lot of people resort to myself for a 100% error rate.

13 and cameron are the type you take home on a saturday. Cutty is the one you tie up on friday night, pound the heck out of her on saturday, and she makes pancakes on sunday morning after a nice nights sleep. Oh, and you get to do it every weekend.
