    The Atlantic on the demise of whom

    An article in The Atlantic has a discussion of the waning usage of whom. Like it or not, this pronoun appears to be disappearing from the language. According to The Atlantic, “Articles in Time magazine included 3,352 instances of whom in the 1930s, 1,492 in the 1990s, and 902 in the 2000s.”

    What do you think? Do you use whom? Would you like it to see it gone for good from the language?

    For an explanation of who and whom and how to use them correctly, see my who/whom entry.

    Hopefully Update

    I wrote the entry on hopefully quite some time ago, and I thought it fitting to update the content to reflect the Associated Press’s decision in April of this year to accept the controversial usage of the word in its Stylebook.

    Back up and running

    The site has been back up and running for a few days now after I took it down due to a hacking incident that occurred two weeks ago. The presence of malicious code was detected by Google and resulted in the site being blacklisted for several days. After reinstalling my site and using the database backup to restore the content, I was able to return the site to its original form.

    Hacked!

    I had the unfortunate experience of having my site hacked for the second time in the past year. I had to completely reinstall my site. Please bear with me as I clean up the mess.
