Spoonful #43: Ask Laura!
We'll be toasting a new decade in a few short days, which makes this the final spoonful of 2019. Given that a whole new year is on the horizon, what better time to ask you, my dear readers, what burning grammar, vocabulary, or punctuation questions you would love for me to address in 2020. I truly appreciate your input to make sure my spoonfuls stay relevant and helpful!!
I promise to address any and all questions, in a future post or right away. You can comment below or if you prefer, email me privately at email@example.com. I pledge that I'll never list any names unless you wish for me to do so.
Thank you for reading and sharing A Spoonful of Grammar. If you're interested in revisiting or catching up on previous spoonfuls, the easiest way is to click on "All Summaries" in the Categories section to the right. Or, feel free to peruse posts under any of the Category headings.
Happy New Year to you and your families. I'm grateful for each and every one of you and wish you all the best.

One situation, which I don't think you've addressed, often makes me pause: when to use WHICH and when to use THAT. Happy New Year, Laura!

Thank you so much, Marcia!!!! Which and that can function as so many different parts of grammar, but probably the most confusion arises when they act as relative pronouns. Coincidentally, I've begun the new year with a series on pronouns, so this topic will fit right in. Thanks for being one of my biggest supporters! I am eternally grateful.

How about who and whom? And do people even use whom anymore anyway? My daughter's boyfriend has a penchant for correcting us in this usage, so I'm asking the master.
