This is my first question so I'm asking for leniency if it is a bit off.
So, here's my question.
I was writing an email to a student of mine to tell him, in answer to a request of his that it was OK for him to share some information with people who helped him in his research.
I found myself writing the following,
"You can share the Zoom link with whoever would like to attend your presentation".
As I was proof-reading my email, I wondered about whoever, more precisely about how it seemingly occupied two functions in the sentence (object of share with and subject of would like). As always when in doubt, I came here and saw this post, which I think gave me the answer I was looking for.
Could anyone please confirm that, as user77991 says, "whoever" is actually just the subject of "would like" and that the object of "share with" is indeed the whole phrase "whoever would like to attend".
The reason I asked myself the question was the old mantra that one word cannot play two roles at the same time in a sentence.
Thanks in advance for your insights and sorry for the lengthy question,
