The shortest English sentence is 'it is'. It has a noun and a verb, which is what every sentence must have. 'It' is the noun and 'is' is the verb.

Well, actually, the shortest English sentence would have to be I am or I go or I do, any of which is one letter shorter. Grammatically speaking, Go as a command is also a complete sentence, as is Be. If you include unqualified interjections, then the hands-down winner would have to be O!

A sentence in English must have no less that a subject and predicate (Noun or pronoun and a verb). The shortest English sentence possible is, "I am." In this instance "I" is the subject, "am" is the predicate.

A sentence is defined as a string of words. Therefore a single word can not make a sentence. The shortest acceptable sentence in the English language is "I am."
