    Whom, by the way...

    Hi there!

    I'm in doubt concerning the last sentence construction. Not sure if the order of the words make sense.

    Once he said he dislikes all things psychological. He says that he leaves that stuff to his daughter. Whom, by the way, is spoken of frequently.

    Cheers,
    Tito

    'Whom' is incorrect. The subject of that passive sentence is 'Who'.

    Consider writing "he talks about" instead of "is spoken of" in the above. Also, for the sake of tense consistency, consider using "he says" instead of "Once he said."
