    Re: Be careful !

    Sometimes people do say just Careful!- it can be a quick way to attract someone's attention.

    Be careful

    Is "Be" functions as a verb of this phrase ?
    Is it a sentence or a phrase ?

    Re: Be careful !

    It's a command, an imperative sentence.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
