I wonder, would the editors of the Tulsa World let this sentence go unchallenged? "My sister is the one who I learn from now"? ("More who, whom," Dec. 1).
How about turning it around to "..is the one from who I learn ..." "Whom" is not some highfalutin word, it's the English language. Good English is good English and pidgin English is pidgin English.
How about this sentence: "My sister taught good English to Tom, Dick and I"? "I" instead of "me" is common usage, but correct it ain't!
