Can you begin a sentence with "When"?
I was wondering if you can begin a sentence with "When". I have not heard that it is grammatically incorrect to do so and am now in the final year of a Masters Degree. I have recently been told by an academic that I should never begin a sentence with When? Can anyone help us settle this query? Thanks, Jo
