English - Etymology

From Old English _hwā_ (dative _hwām_, genitive _hwæs_), from Proto-Germanic _*hwaz_, from Proto-Indo-European _*kʷos_, _*kʷis_. Spelling change _hw_ > _wh_ in Middle English (without sound change in initial consonant cluster), while sound change /hw/ > /h/ due to _wh_-cluster reduction after a bizarre instance of three consecutive vowel shifts of /aː/ to /ɔː/ to /oʊ/ in Middle English, although some do still pronounce the word with /hw/. Compare _how_, which underwent this change earlier (in Old English), and thus is spelt _h._ Compare West Frisian _wa_, Dutch _wie_, Low German _we_, German _wer_.

English - Pronoun

WHO (_singular or plural, nominative case_, _possessive_ WHOSE, _objective case_ WHOM) * (interrogative pronoun) What person or people; which person or people (used in a direct or indirect question). _WHO is that?_ (direct question) _I don't know WHO it is._ (indirect question) * (relative pronoun) The person or people that. _It was a nice man WHO helped us._ USAGE NOTES _WHO_ is a subject pronoun. _Whom_ is an object pronoun. To determine whether a particular sentence uses a subject or an object pronoun, rephrase it to use _she_/_he_ or _her_/_him_ instead of _who_, _whom_; if you use _she_, then you use the subject pronoun _who_; if you use _her_, then you use the object pronoun. In informal speech, especially in the United States, _who_ may also be found as an object pronoun (hence one hears not only _WHOM are you waiting for?_ but also _WHO are you waiting for?_), and _whom_ may be seen as (overly) formal. As an exception to this, fronted prepositional phrases almost always use WHOM, e.g. one usually says _with WHOM did you go?_, not *_with WHO did you go?_. The use of _who_ as an object pronoun is proscribed by many authorities. When "who" (or the other relative pronouns "that" and "which") is used as the subject of a relative clause, the verb agrees with the antecedent of the pronoun. Thus "I who am...", "He who is...", "You who are...", etc. TRANSLATIONS

who (singular or plural, nominative case, possessive whose, objective case whom)

  1. (interrogative pronoun) What person or people; which person or people (used in a direct or indirect question).
    Who is that? (direct question)
    I don't know who it is. (indirect question)
  2. (relative pronoun) The person or people that.
    It was a nice man who helped us.

Usage notes

Who is a subject pronoun. Whom is an object pronoun. To determine whether a particular sentence uses a subject or an object pronoun, rephrase it to use she/he or her/him instead of who, whom; if you use she, then you use the subject pronoun who; if you use her, then you use the object pronoun.

In informal speech, especially in the United States, who may also be found as an object pronoun (hence one hears not only whom are you waiting for? but also who are you waiting for?), and whom may be seen as (overly) formal. As an exception to this, fronted prepositional phrases almost always use whom, e.g. one usually says with whom did you go?, not *with who did you go?.

The use of who as an object pronoun is proscribed by many authorities.

When "who" (or the other relative pronouns "that" and "which") is used as the subject of a relative clause, the verb agrees with the antecedent of the pronoun. Thus "I who am...", "He who is...", "You who are...", etc.
