  1. A super article, Janet and most useful. I certainly get confused, and I’m English, but funnily enough we were never taught this in school, neither were we taught when to use I or me, although that one is not nearly so tricky once you have a simple rule.

  2. Who and whom are much trickier than the I/me subject/object errors people make eg

    To whom did you give it?
    Who did you give it to?

    The first is, I think, correct but sounds pedantic and clumsy. The second is, perhaps, incorrect but springs readily from the lips and is very common.
