the shortest complete sentence in the english language is "Go" not, "I am."

Go isn't classed as a complete sentence. It's a word. Just like yes and no.

Go is indeed the shortest sentence, it has a verb and a subject. "Go" being the verb and "you" (understood) being the subject.

boom

Go is a sentence, the subject is you and is implied, and the predicate is "go".

yea, there's lots of sentences in English that are shorter than "I am." "Go" is one.. "Die" "Yes" "No" just to name a few.. as explained above by others the subject is not needed.. it's understood..

this is a stupid blog

'Go' is not a complete sentence in the English language, as it does not have a simple subject. That goes for 'Yes' and 'No' as well. 'I am' is, infact the shortest sentence in the English language.

actually, when you die, your hair doesn't still grow, it's just a result of your skin shrinking and shrivelling up, due to lack of water.

The word Colgate is not "hang yourself" in spanish. The correct conjugation would be cuelgate from the verb colgar.

I am is in fact the shortest PROPER sentence in the English language. Considering the fact a proper sentence needs a subject and a predicate. 'I' [subject] is stating who or what the sentence is about, and 'am' [predicate] tells about I. Saying the word or demand 'Go' is a sentence is just like saying 'run' or 'talk' is a sentence. Go is saying what to do. So I, think that you are very wrong. I think 'Grow Up' would also not be considered a full complete and proper English sentence, only because it is not stating who or what needs to or is going to grow up.
