Which is grammatically correct? I'm not really sure how onomatopoeias work.

1. “Vroom!” the chainsaw took right off.
2. "Vroom!" The chainsaw took right off.
3. other?

  • English -

    Number 2 is grammatically correct. Since you have an end mark -- an exclamation point -- after "Vroom," the next sentence should start with a capital letter.

  • English -

    so it's ok that "Vroom!" is a fragment?

  • English -

    Yes, "Vroom!" is a fragment, but it's accepted in informal writing.
