    Default Re: Semantics of this sentence

    Hi Tdol!

    Cantontype thought John D should add question mark at the end of this sentence:
    "If an advert can get you thinking it is a good advert. "

    haha ;)

    Sentence should end with a question mark.
    Which sentence? I can't see a question here. 'Whoever' isn't being used as a question word.
