Pronouns can be tricky. There are so many different kinds. In this week's grammar review, we will look at some rules that you may have forgotten. I'm going to try not to turn into Miss. Beastly, my evil twin who likes to recite grammar rules. I'm more laid back than that, besides I agree with Clarence Darrow, a U.S. defence attorney who said, "Even if you learn to speak correct English, to whom are you going to speak it?" It's not pointless. We must keep trying. For encouragement here is a knock, knock joke. "Knock, knock." "Whose there?" "To." "To who?", "No, to whom?" Maybe that lame joke will help you remember how to use who and whom correctly after you've read my explanation. Do you know a narcissist? Someone who thinks about themselves and no one else. Something a narcissist might say is, "Enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think of me?" A great line from a narcissistic Bette Midler in a movie called Beaches.
I hope this week's review has been interesting. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. B-
