This blog is about the story of my family here in America. We arrived in the 1630s as Puritans, and became the common folk of the New World.

English language - when you should use the word whom

As you know, the English language changes with time. Words, like fashions, go out of style. And if you are wondering when you should use the word *whom* these days, the answer is never.

The word whom was on its way out in the 1950s. Even then, it was a good way to get yourself mocked. So if you don't know how to use it, don't worry about it. It sounds terribly stilted. It's like saying, *year ye, hear ye*. There was a time and place for it, but that time has gone.

With apologies to English teachers everywhere!
