And you're not supposed to start a sentence with a conjunction, either. Yet
I do it all the time. For I recall that Ernest Hemingway got away with it

Subject: use of "however"

Someone who edited one of my documents recently told
me that it is inproper usage to begin a sentence with
the word "However."

Does anyone have a view on this?
