very short sentences

What is the shortest (grammatically and syntactically) correct sentence in the English language? How about "Be"? "Be." is shorter than "Kill." and is the same length as "Do." but based on descending alphabetical order of the initial letter in each case "Be." would take pride of place at the top of the list. The sentence "I." is neither grammatically nor syntactically correct because it lacks an object not to mention a verb, as do the exclamatories "O!", "Ah!" and many more. So it would seem that "Be." is the outright winner, unless anyone can come up with another candidate (let me know if you think you can).
