Category:English sentences

This category is being established to facilitate the counting of English entries that are full sentences. Sentences with a missing copula, such as certain forms of proverbs will be included. Initially no effort will be made:

  1. to exclude non-sentences that invoke full-sentence proverbs
  2. to specifically categorize entries that are in categories such as English proverbs or English rhetorical questions that are, in principle, populated with full sentence entries.

Also, headwords that can form a sentence but are principally other parts of speech will be excluded. For example, imperative/hortative/precative forms of verb that are identical to the bare infinitive are excluded. In contrast, the command about face is included.

Many of the entries in this category are bare sentences (sometimes called kernel sentences) and would usually have modifiers in normal usage.
