    Who(m) did Julie talk to

    Hi,


    Who(m) did Julie talk to?

    I do not know Who(m) did Julie talk to/Who(m) Julie talked to.

    Which noun clause is correct for the sentence? I think it supposed to be with did.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Who(m) did Julie talk to

    Some people will insist that only Whom did Julie talk to is correct. However, few Anglophones actually use whom except when it immediately follows a preposition.

    Write I don't (or "do not") know who Julie talked to. The version with did is incorrect.

    Re: Who(m) did Julie talk to

    These are the most natural forms:

    Who did Julie talk to?
    I don't know who Julie talked to.
