What is the shortest sentence in English?

Aug 29, 2021

The shortest sentence in English is a word.

Yes, “Go,” all of two letters is a grammatically correct English sentence. It’s only a sentence, though, if it’s a command, because then “you” is the understood subject. It’s commanding the listener to go. If you’d rather a sentence with a separate word as the subject, “I am” is the shortest sentence, with three letters.
