Thank you for making that clear about what assertion is.
CalifJimHere "you went to Chicago" is considered non-assertive by some grammarians because it's not in a main clause.

If you went to Chicago, ... / ... when you went to Chicago. / ... before you went to Chicago. / ...
So to be 100% sure that a sentence is an assertion, the verb in the main clause has to be positive.

I hope I've got this right. Again, thanks. Emotion: smile
Hi again,

I've thought up another related example below.

John: Would you like a burger or a fajita?
Ana: I'd like a burger.
A. John: OK, burger it is.
B. John: OK, burger is it.

1. Could you please advise which is correct between A and B above?
2. By the way, is my grammar with all the sentences in the exchange above correct (except, of course, the incorrect choice between A and B)?

Again, I would really appreciate your help here.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
