I wondered if using "there's" instead of "there are" was a trend, because I have heard quite a few intelligent/educated people use "there's" when I thought that "there are" was correct.
"Who have" and "that have" is another area that makes me wonder. I always thought that if you were referring to people/a person you would use "who have/has" and not "that has". Am I right or wrong here?
Correct: Is she the one who has access to the vault?
Incorrect: Is she the one that has access to the vault?
Now I am going to admit that I've always been a bit confused when it comes to using "who" and "whom". I had thought that when I was back in high school, that I learned there are certain times when "whom" has been traditionally used, but it is now acceptable to just say "who". Can anyone clarify this? I don't care for the more formal air of using "whom", but I would like to use who/whom correctly.
"Who owns this building?"
"Is he the one who owns this building?"
"Is he the one whom owns this building?"
"Who do I give the money to?"
"Whom do I give the money to?"
Can you please tell me which of the above sentences are incorrect?
I have seen the more modern definition of "awesome", but still think that the word is overused and should still be reserved for something truly awe-inspiring. But the masses have obviously disagreed.
