I was thinking about sentances too short to be full to be outright SVO (or whatever sequence)....and was struck by something. if you hear this conversation one day... Person A: "Are you sure this isn't too much work for you?" Person B: "No sweat." ...what would you think 'sweat' was? *curious* it's not a verb, and I doubt its a noun...a simile or metaphor, or shorthand for "no hardship" ? thoughts?
