  1. I learned English by reading, not by studying, and I’ve diagrammed a few simple sentences for the fun of it, BUT I have no idea what I’m doing there if your want it to be formal grammar and know why.

    Reading provides a huge database; when I can’t figure out exactly what I’m supposed to do, I use the Handbook of Good English.

    It is always interesting to get a quick rule of thumb, and this is a useful one. I didn’t know ‘who’ was a subject pronoun, and ‘whom’ an object one, and now I do. Thanks.
