Hi,
Is "Thank God!" a sentence?

(My opinion is that it could be interpreted as imperative, but I don't hear it that way. Perhaps "Let us thank God!")

Thanks,

- A.

AvangiHi,Is "Thank God!" a sentence? Yes, although there is an ellipsis.
(My opinion is that it could be interpreted as imperative, but I don't hear it that way. It could be an imperative, but more commonly it has the meaning of (I)(We) thank God.

In spite of the terrible storm, I got home safely. (I) Thank God.
What the heck is going on with the light bulbs replacing the word (I)?
I'd say, yes, it is a subjunctive sentence.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The system is pulling in an emoticon. Try placing a space before and after the I and it should stop misbehaving.
Hi, canadian, The codes for a lot of the smileys are a letter or a number or two between parentheses. You can save it by putting a space on either side of the "l", or whatever you have in the parentheses. "( a )" gives you an angel (without the spaces).
The smiley routine doesn't seem to distinguish between a capital "I" and a small "l".
Thanks for the reply, BTW.

Yes it is a sentence but there has been an ellipsis on the subject. I/we if put in would give you subject, verb and object.

Thanks, guys.
Avangi teacher,
Thank God - is it not an expression. is it not similar like Me Lord?
thanks, smdl
What the heck is going on with the light bulbs replacing the word (I)?-- As often happens, you must open the brackets by at least one space around certain letters, and your cap I (however you made that!) is one of them. Where did you get that cap I, anyway?
