who vs whom
me vs i
certain people always say the latter ones to sound more sophisticated. drives me crazy.
who = subject
who is that sexy man?
whom = object
whom is he making out with?
(pls don't harp about ending with prepositions..that's not a real rule)
i = subject or compared to the subject
that sexy man and i are going to eat strawberries
that fat woman is shorter than i (i know it sounds dumb...)
me = object
that fat woman gave the cookies to me
fewer = quantifiable
andy has fewer grand slams than roger
less = not quantifiable
andy has less hair than roger
