    Default Nonsense

    This is not even a sentence.

    Actually, yes, it is a sentence. It is even a properly constructed one. This pleases me.

    I think it is... But you all are going vague with "this". My English teacher would be so offended. "This" what?

    Yes, nonsense should be grammatical. Otherwise it becomes gibberish.

    I submit that OH SH*T is a complete sentence. The nouns and verbs are understood, as in "OH SH*T I just XXXXXX!" It is understood that OH SH*T is a complete sentence not only by yourself but also all those around you at the time of the incident.

    Please pardon my verbosity. I am drinking wine. Lots o' wine.

    I agree with 3df completely and would like to add the phrase F... Y... to the list of complete sentences.

    Thanks, Appaloosalady--
    I would like to suggest that "You and the horse you rode in on" is also a complete sentence. Once again, it is understood by all in the general area.

    I'm feeling an urge to brush up on grammar with a Youtube session of Schoolhouse Rock.

    But does sense + nonsense = zero? And what happens when you do it with imaginary numbers?
