Dear all,

I have a serious linguistic problem.

Is it anyhow common among native English-speakers to write sentences without subject? I'm not referring to passives but rather to sentences where I am the subject.

My brains are trying to tell me that it is grammatically incorrect but for some reason it doesn't sound wrong.
Can you give me an example?  It is Saturday morning and my brain isn't thinking properly.

If you have an example, that would be helpful. 

To my knowledge (I never studied grammar further than what the nuns taught me), it would be grammatically incorrect most of the time.  Colloquially, I might look over at a friend as I leave the apartment and say "Going to the store."  Since I am saying it, and I'm the one in the act of leaving, it would be presumed that I'm the subject, so it would make sense.  But if my friend was the one leaving, I could say the exact same words as a question "Going to the store?" and again the subject would be implied.  In both cases, however, I don't think it's grammatically correct. 

On the other hand, commands can be given without a subject, and they are grammatically correct.  So, "Go to the store!" or even "Go!" are perfectly acceptable as complete sentences.

Going to differ with you a bit on this. Your examples (and my opening sentence) fit the rules (i.e. grammar) of colloquial English. However, you are correct if you mean, and I expect you do, that they do not fit the rules of literary English. It's a bit like the clothing we wear: what is appropriate and correct for the beach is not appropriate and correct for a formal dinner (I wanted to say "church", but we've had that discussion a bit too often lately  Grin).

I'm not sure if it's proper English, or just a personal thing due to my french, but the interrogative is correct if you raise your voice at the end. so, going to the stORE?

Either way, if they arent by the book correct, no one will look at you funny if you do. Just like my old french (from around paris) teacher that used texter instead of envoyer une message SMS, both meaning to text.

In Québec, texter is correct and official - a fact which actually surprises me somewhat as the Office québécois de la langue française usually abhors anglicisms.

It seems that I should trust my instincts when it comes to English language. Never had much use for spoken English in real life so I'm not really sure what's colloquialism and what's basically just incorrect grammar.

(Old-timer speak)

This thread began as a count-down to 100,000 posts; in fact, the high posting volume in this thread helped us get "over the hump" faster than what we were on pace for. 

We're now within striking distance of 1,000,000 posts.  Less than 300 posts to go (less than a day's work).

That's all.

Can I even do that?  You're the one "laying claim to the Phanar!"  Or is your claim more of a property lien than an ecclesiastical dispute?

All of my internet friends have now converted to Eastern Orthodoxy, and I alone have escaped to tell you.

Memories of middle school flood me.

That actually happened to me once, but her dad was surprisingly a nice guy. He was this lazy old retired German guy married to a Filipina and the girl was their only child. He liked tobacco.

My friend, who is in his late twenties, just realized his dad dips tobacco.  He thought the ubiquitous can in his dad's back pocket was shoe polish he always carried around.

The artist is American and she has an Armenian name, Nina Katchadourian. And the paintings that inspired her are Flemish, which is to say Belgian...

As I found out recently, I think we can't just sweep the various tones of red under the redhead umbrella.

Was she a strawberry beige?
