    Question no Subject !

    hi

    Is it possible not to bring any subject to the sentence in conversation?

    e.g. "sold 100 books today ."instead of "I sold 100 books today" ?

    You could in casual conversation:

    'How was your day?'
    'Not bad- sold 100 books.'

    Re: no Subject !

    ok
    imagine I'm a gambler (ofcourse I'm not)

    I lose 1000 $ and you wanna say that it's "Gamblers' fate"

    and i say "i'm not a gambler .I just wanted to make fun "

    how does this dialoge happen ?i mean is there any other way to say those?
