I wonder if the following sentence is correct: "How beautiful [day] it is today!".
Also, I'd like to know whether the word order of "What a beautiful day it is." is correct... It shouldn't be "What a beautiful day is it!, should it?
Could you correct my English, please? Even if I write grammatically correct, you can correct me stylistically. (I hope you understand what I mean )
Thanks, Harry! :)
As to the sentence "How beautiful [day] it is today!" is it correct as well?
Let's imagine this situation:
1st Speaker: "It was a very beautiful day, yesterday!"
2nd Speaker: "Oh, and how beautiful it is today!"
This "conversation" may sound funny and a little artificial, I know . But I've thought it out just for the purpose of showing you the possible context of the sentence "How beautiful it is today!"
I am just not too sure whether the adjective can be included into the sentence without the word "one" which would replace the noun "day", actually. If the adjective can't work without its noun, then, "how" can never be used in such sentences, can it?
By the way, could you correct my English, please?
In the context of your dialogue, I don't see anything wrong with the second speaker's utterance. It follows and it's clear what the speaker means, so I think it's OK. Speaking is much more about meaning that ensuring that we follow on from the previous speaker perfectly grammatically and logically. Something like 'And it's another beautiful day today' would be more likely, but what you put would follow without any confusion IMO.
