Really? I don't think so.

It *is* a question.

It wouldn't be a question if there had been a first part to the sentence. For instance:
He doesn't know how old that dog is.
Eldad

But, if it were a question, it should have been phrased differently:
How old is that dog?

So, as it stands now, something is wrong with this particular variant.

Eldad, and couldn't this be an exclamation?
Shishir
2011-12-11 02:03
How old this dog is! (I say this because the Polish sentence indirectly linked to this sentence has an exclamation mark)
Eldad
2011-12-11 02:04
Yes, indeed!
So, the period would have to be replaced with an exclamation mark.
Espi
2011-12-11 02:04
But astonished I can state: "How old that dog is."
Eldad
2011-12-11 02:05
(yes! I didn't see your comment about the exclamation mark - replied before I saw your other comment).
Espi
2011-12-11 02:07
Yes, perhaps it'll be better with "!"
Eldad
2011-12-11 02:07
Espi, you couldn't say that with a period at the end of the sentence. You say that yourself - you're astonished :) So, being astonished, would only a period suffice to express your feeling? :)

I've already changed my sentence. Thanks for the explanation ;)

Can you see the French translation? I know they are linked...
Eldad
2011-12-11 02:29
The French variant cannot be seen here. Are they really linked?

Yes! Look at the logs...
Eldad
2011-12-11 02:32
Yes, you're right. But it was unlinked (I guess it was unlinked because it underwent a change, from a question to an exclamation... :-))

Ahh, you're right! Thank you! :)
