A: Where is interesting?
Do you think the structure "where is interesting" is acceptable or perfect? Please analyze it grammatically and rhetorically. Thanks.
Hmmm, no, it's missing something. "Where can I find a discussion forum?" works. "What part of that is interesting?" works. "Which of these forums are the most interesting?" works.
Can you elaborate a bit on what question is meant to be asked?
I can think of a way that it makes sense.
Person A: I'm looking around at a bunch of sites.
Person B: What is interesting? [Would probably be more like "Do you see anything interesting?"]
Person A: This site called Able2Know is pretty interesting.
Interesting is an adjective, it needs to describe a noun.
"Where is interesting? " does not contain a noun.
Romance languages usually imply the person within the verb. So one can make sentences such as: "¿Donde es interesante?" (Spanish) or "Dov'è interessante?" (Italian). "Es" and "è" imply an undefined third person singular.
That would translate to: "Where is it interesting?".
Yup, an example is:
"Importante é falar corretamente"
Nice mates, you-all are perfect!
