    Default whom or who

    Hostile villages spawn barbarians whom attack everything around them.

    Is an above sentence correct?

    I think that whom have to change to who.

    Default Re: whom or who

    Replace "who(m)" with a pronoun. Which one sounds better?

    . . .who/they attack everything around them.
    . . .whom/them attack everything around them.

    Note, the verb is "attack", its object is "everything" and its subject is "who". Use "whom" or "what" for the verb's object:

    Object: non-person
    They attack everything. => What do they attack?

    Object: person
    They attack us. => Whom do they attack?


    Grammar Help: I think that whom should be changed to who.
