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....?
many thanks Thomas! is your perspective British or American?
I will have a global audience with the majority of Americans
it is the same in modern english. who is conversational mostly, whom is a bit oudated but is used mostly in written form
got it - many thanks!
Yeah you are right. " to whom ".....is often used in written form. thanks for insights.
Почему-то я думала Who should the report be submitted to? Или даже Who is the report (supposed) to be submitted to?
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.
...the useof Whom is rare among american.....I think it is more british.
Улий ....you balanced!
Thomas, если вы это адресуете Улию, то он и есть американец...
I addressed to Oleg Shevaldyshev
I WAS ADDRESSING Oleg... 😉
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
so the questions will be on the slides and I will be voicing them too
You are welcome Oleg Shevaldyshev!!!
