“How About…” and “What About…”

Margie Wakeman Wells The Question Mark, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

These begin idiomatic expressions that are asking questions. They are followed by an interrog. The confusion comes, I think, because there is no verb in the expression.

…How about John? Did he go with you?
…What about the report? Did it get filed on time?

Happy punctuating!
