If I were to say, "It is you who I adore", is that correct, or should it be "It is you whom I adore"?
I think it's who because:
Who = she
Whom = her
"Whom do you love?" Answers "I love her"
"Who is it that you love?" Answers "It is she whom I love
Am I correct?
You can actually break this down into two simple sentences (subject, verb, object): "It is you" and "I adore____."
I'll use your aid: "I adore her"
or "I adore she"
If you replace her with whom, your complex sentence turns out as " It is you whom I adore"
You use 'whom' when it is the object.
You have the general idea, who is subjective and whom is objective. Who is incorrect in "It is you who I adore" because It is you, I adore whom or whom I adore. One should never say "Whom do you love." It should be Who do you love? The answer could be I love her or she is the one I love.
I think itÂ´s who.
Who indicates subject
Whom indicates the object of a verb.
