You are one of those people who correct me.

I have confusion regarding the use of "one of them" and "one of those". Why we don't use "one of them"? Please explain it.

  • Are you asking "why don't we say 'one of them people who correct me'? – Michael Harvey Sep 21 at 8:42

I think the relative pronoun who is preceded by noun or a pronoun in subjective case.

You are one of those people who correct me

We say it is I who am to blame

We do not say:

It is me who am to blame

so you are one of those people who correct me but not

you are one of them people who correct me.

This, that , these and those have no objective cases though they may be used as objects or subjects. They are demonstrative pronouns and they may be followed by nouns.

One of them people is wrong because them is a personal pronoun which can not follow any noun or a relative pronoon.
