So I have this sentence, and I don't know if you can say "cause" or if I should replace it with another word.

Thank you, thegirlinneedofhelp

  • In spoken English, yes. Whereas, if it is written academically, no. – John Arvin Apr 20 '19 at 11:50
  • It's for my speaking oral exams - will it work for that? – thegirlinneedofhelp Apr 20 '19 at 14:41
  • Unless it's interpreted as an imperative, there is no subject, so it's only a sentence fragment. (Who or what causes that?) – Jason Bassford Apr 20 '19 at 14:51
  • Oh, sorry - I'll write the full sentence here: "Could she cause unwholesome inspiration and impact on viewers?" – thegirlinneedofhelp Apr 20 '19 at 15:17
  • Could I use that one? – thegirlinneedofhelp Apr 21 '19 at 16:45
