Bigboss? Wow! Thanks, Coco! Smile

I'm afraid that sentence isn't possible, my friend. There are instances with the construction

Let + direct object + base verb,

but it's extremely formal and even considered archaic. You'll rarely hear this construction used these days except in a pat sentence such as Let the games begin!

Bigboss? Wow! Thanks, Coco!

I think by "bigboss," Coco meant my nickname, not you, Richard.Smile BTW, I'm sorry I have such a username. It's just for fun.Smile



quote:
But that's just a statement of fact, so it doesn't really capture the "spirit" of the original imperative sentence.

Yes, of course.Smile
Aw, and here I thought Coco was calling me a bigboss, too. Frown LOL

Here's a teachable moment, as they say. My confusion was a result of Coco using a comma between our screen names rather than saying and. If I'd read Thank you, Richard and bigboss, I would have known Coco was addressing two people, but the use of just a comma made it appear as though she were referring to me alone. Ah! The wonders of punctuation vs. conjunctions! Wink
