comment Is this a complete sentence?
I'm asking more than one question and I'm not concerned about any missing subject which that other thread is all about.

comment Is this a complete sentence?
I'm asking all the questions I have asked in my original post. I want to know whether or not it is a complete, grammatically correct sentence but not because there is a subject missing, but because of the participle being right after an imperative verb.

I'm not asking about omissions. I'm not worried that a subject is missing. I want to know whether the participle with the imperative verb is okay in formal writing.

comment Do these adjectives refer to ice?
dictionary.die.net describes impalpable as "Not palpable; that cannot be felt; extremely fine, so that no grit can be perceived by touch. ``Impalpable powder.'' So I guess the writer is saying the air is like very thin ice, frosty. Okay, thanks, terdon.

what about "I refuse running down to the store to get you a newspaper"? Because that sounds correct.

yeah. Or "I like eating watermelon" as opposed to "I like to eat watermelon". A matter of taste?

"I decline running" sounds better than "I declined to run", because it uses fewer words.
