4 Go is the shortest complete sentence in the English language

How is that a complete sentence though? - Randomator

Wouldn’t No also be a complete sentence? - Randomator

This is an interesting concept, but it might be wrong. A complete sentence has to involve a subject (he's) and a predicate (cool, over there,etc.). A word like "go" or "no" is not a complete sentence since it only implies a subject. Therefore, the shortest complete sentence would have to be "I am." "I" is the subject; "am" is the predicate.

How is that shorter than, "No."?

The order of where the letters are have nothing to do with how short it is. - RockFashionista
