    Smile how and what

    I've a new thread to talk to.
    how can I know when I can build a exclamation using how and what?
    For instance:
    what a beautiful house!
    how beautiful house (?)

    thanks
    Luigi

    Re: how and what

    The second is wrong. After how, you can use an adjective alone - How beautiful! - or you could say How beautiful that house is! (Note the position of the verb)
