What is the subject and object in this sentence?
What is the subject and what is object in this sentence "A doctor, please!" ?
As Lewis has told you, that is not a sentence in English. There is no verb, or subject or object as such. In German, where cases for nouns are obligatory, the assumprion appears to have been made that the sntence is an abbreviated form of 'I would like to see a doctor, please', In that sentence, 'I' is the subject and 'a doctor' the object. However, we do not need to make such assumptions in English. There is simply no usbject or object in 'A doctor, please'.
