@Lustig Andrei,
Quote:
'Moribund' and 'obsolete' are not synonims, JTT.


Did I say they were, Merry?

Quote:
I would even question just how archaic (i.e.moribund) the objective case 'whom/whomever' useage has become.


'archaic' and 'moribund' are not synonyms either. 'whom' is part of a case system that is dead, just as 'were' is part of a subjunctive system that is dead.

That remnants remain doesn't make them any the less moribund.

Quote:
Certainly people of a certain age (read: moi)who are familiar with what you refer to as 'prescriptive' grammar and with the English anguage
tend to use the proper case. I do most of the time. I suspect tat so does Roberta and other literate souls here on A2k.


Being literate, and prescriptive certainly doesn't make a person wise, Merry. That's not the "proper" case.

I think that a recording of your speech would illustrate to you that you know as little about your own usage as you do about the usage of others.

I haven't noticed you to be overly pompous in your postings. You're not seriously trying to suggest that you regularly say such things as,

"Whom did you tell/see/phone/call/...?"

Even 13 year old Gracie [now 14, I believe] knew that that's not how English works.

You don't have to tell me that, Rocky. I ain't the one with the prescriptivist bent.

Not to be all pedantic and nit-picky here, folks, but we're having this little tete-a-tete on the wrong thread. This is all about funny signs, not the vagaries of English as she is spoke.

sometimes I feel that a2k is heavily populated by folks that regularly got sent home with a report card that said "doesn't play well with others"...

just sayin'.
