Usage notes

Traditionally, the word for him in Bokmål is ham. However, as most people use only han in regular conversations, it used to be a somewhat common mistake when writing Bokmål. It is now allowed to use either han and ham as the object form. Additionally, Nynorsk uses almost exclusively han as both subject and object form, though honom is a rarely used correct object form. Ham is not an allowed word in Nynorsk.
