I've never posted a grammar question on EE but I suppose in the miscellaneous category, anything is acceptable, right?
I'm creating a promotional email to send to a database of customers. Part of the copy includes the following:
"…Perhaps your own children (or grandchildren) are in that category or maybe your nieces & nephews or some of the kids in your neighborhood. Whomever they are, we want to send them [product] as a gift from [company name] and YOU!"
My question is whether or not "Whomever" is correctly used there. Or should it be, "Whoever"?
If you know the answer, could you also explain the rule or rationale?
