A full (short) sentence!

Me:  "Do you want butter on your bread?"
Gavriel Zev:  "Budder right here?"
Everything he says has a question mark on the end.
Still - a real sentence!
It's the first I've heard with more than 2 words, even though a linguist would probably argue that he hears "right here" together so often it's functioning as a single word in this context.
I guess that's why I don't hang out with a lot of linguists.

  1. This "sentence" is also lacking a verb!

    Unless "butter" is the verb, being used non-transitively, and in the imperative -- i.e., "[you] butter [this bread] right here".

    In which case: Awwwwww!


I love your comments!
