As in "you're so wrong" or "it's so wrong" claretblue? Sentences without verbs really offend me also! >:( ;D

Reminds me of the dick in a truck who very nearly ploughed into the back of me on Highway 20 in Montreal on Monday. One very scary moment, that.

Sentences without verbs are effective in novels and some newspaper articles. It's cliches that irritate me.

At the end of the day, cliches are like a red rag to a bull to me, especially at this moment in time.

Funnily enough, my father used to get irritated by 'at this moment in time' back in the 70s.

How can anybody quote a sentence that employs the most common verb in English as an example of a sentence without a verb?

I suspect only on 'ClaretsMad.'

'You're so wrong'

is perfectly grammatical.

Subject You

Verb are. (Abbreviated). Second person simple present. Verb is (to) 'be'

Advertb. so

Predicatative adjective (as subject complement.) wrong

Not that there is anything automatically defective (or annoying) in verb free sentences. A plain 'No' for example would be a correct response to any question or request where the absent parts of speech are unmistakably implied from the previous sentence. (Make up any sentence to try this out.)

Without this device English would grind to a halt in endless repetition.

I think he was referring to the so wrong as a shortened version of It's so wrong...
