Oleg Shevaldyshevadded a note 3 months ago

note (en-en)

Please advise - "to who?" or "to whom?"...

Context - "To who / to whom should the report be submitted?"

I realize there may be differences between British and American English...

Many thanks in advance!

It is ....To whom should the report be submitted....?

Oleg Shevaldyshevadded a comment 3 months ago

many thanks Thomas!
is your perspective British or American?

Oleg Shevaldyshevadded a comment 3 months ago

I will have a global audience with the majority of Americans

Татьяна Межоваadded a comment 3 months ago

it is the same in modern english. who is conversational mostly, whom is a bit oudated but is used mostly in written form

Thomas Simonadded a comment 3 months ago

Yeah you are right. " to whom ".....is often used in written form. thanks for insights.

Tatiana Gerasimenkoadded a comment 3 months ago

Почему-то я думала Who should the report be submitted to? Или даже Who is the report (supposed) to be submitted to?

Улий 🐝added a comment 3 months ago

In this case, there are no differences between American and British English, but rather a matter of usage. In both languages, the use of “whom“ is limited to very formal situations. As Tatiana correctly suggested, it would be most common to hear “who should the report to be submitted to?“ In modern English.

Thomas Simonadded a comment 3 months ago

...the useof Whom is rare among american.....I think it is more british.

Улий ....you balanced!

Tatiana Gerasimenkoadded a comment 3 months ago

Thomas, если вы это адресуете Улию, то он и есть американец...

Thomas Simonadded a comment 3 months ago

I addressed to Oleg Shevaldyshev

Улий 🐝added a comment 3 months ago

I WAS ADDRESSING Oleg... 😉

Oleg Shevaldyshevadded a comment 3 months ago

many thanks All!
the reason why I'm asking is that because I won't use the full sentence on the slides but rather a list of questions, including "who?" (should submit the report) and "to who/whom?"; all other "wh" questions will be there too

Oleg Shevaldyshevadded a comment 3 months ago

so the questions will be on the slides and I will be voicing them too

Thomas Simonadded a comment 3 months ago
