comment Is it “grammar error” or “grammatical error”?
@ColinFine Oh certainly, and I do (by the English language, anyway). Working with much more consistent computer languages every day makes it worse.

For instance, isn‘t Sue telling the subject to guess what she did, rather than asking?

comment Should “guess what” be a question or command?
I have doubts that “guess what” is ever a question at all. If I expand “guess what” to “guess what I'm doing”, that wouldn't be a question, would it? Nor would simply “guess”. So why should a sentence of equivalent meaning be a question? Or should “guess what” be expanded to “Can you guess what I'm doing now?”. That seems like a big interpretive leap.

comment Yours vs. your's
Thanks for the clarification there, it's just something that's always confused me and I always thought I was doing it correctly but never quite sure.
