Is "The question" in:

"The question whether we should go or stay comes next."


LanguageTool suggests to remove "The question" from the sentence. However, I think "The question" is fine in there. Why do you think Language Tool is suggesting that?

  • You have linked to the tool, but we don't see your sentence anymore. So, what was the sentence? – Jan May 14 '19 at 10:56
  • Please don't put the first part of your question in the title anymore. Give it a meaningful title instead. – J.R. May 14 '19 at 11:02
  • Did you try ""The question whether we should go or stay comes next."" in LT? – Zeeshan Ali May 14 '19 at 11:14

You need a preposition after the word question. Normally one would use of:

The question of whether we should go or stay comes next.

Or, you can put the actual question in quotes:

The question “Should we go or stay?” comes next.

If you remove "The question", then you loose most of the meaning of the sentence.

You may rephrase it as:

We should decide next whether we should go or stay.
