    I know Who(m) you spoke to or I know to whom you spoke.

    1.I know Who(m) you spoke to.

    2.I know who(m) it was given to.


    according to above noun clauses ,Can we move the preposition 'to' before 'whom'?


    e.g:1.I know to whom you spoke.

    .....2.I know to whom it was given .

    Re: I know Who(m) you spoke to or I know to whom you spoke.

    Is this sentence correct?

    'We had a discussion about to whom You spoke.'

    No. 'We had a discussion about whom you spoke to'.

    Dinusha, you are becoming too obsessed with 'whom'. Millions of native speakers go through their entire lives never using the word.
