4th grade

posted by .

Is it grammatically correct to begin a sentence with "what" if it is not a question or exclamation? For example: What a tree looks like.

  • 4th grade -

    "What a tree looks like." = not a sentence. It's a fragment.

    You could write this, though:
    What a tree looks like tells botanists what kind of tree it is.

  • 4th grade -

    That is not a sentence.
