    Whose

    Whose shirt is that ? This sound right.
    How about this : Whose is that shirt? Is this sentence correct?
    Thanks

    Re: Whose

    Yes. The word 'whose' can function both as a determiner, as in your first example, and as a (pure) pronoun, as in your second. The first, however, is easily the more common pattern.
