The 4 types of sentences are: declarative (statement), exclamatory (exclamation), imperative (command) and interrogative (question). Let us know more about these sentences

Declarative Sentence

A declarative or assertive sentence states a fact, opinion or idea. Most sentences are declarative. A declarative sentence is followed by a period (.).

Examples:

  • He sold chocolates to the members of the club.
  • No, I do not like to swim in the beach.

Exclamatory Sentence

An exclamatory sentence expresses strong feeling. The exclamatory sentence always ends with an exclamation point.

Examples:

  • That sounds incredible!
  • I can’t believe that you didn’t turn up to the party!

Imperative Sentence

An imperative sentence gives a command or a request. Imperative sentences do not have a subject as you is the implied subject. The imperative sentence is usually followed by a period (.). Very strong commands may be followed by an exclamation point (!).

Examples:

  • Do not yell at me!
  • Kindly take the seat next to the door.
  • Dare not you repeat the mistake.

Interrogative Sentence

An interrogative sentence asks a question. An interrogative sentence is followed by a question mark (?).

Examples:

  • Have you ever seen a purple butterfly?
  • Would you like to play with the boys at the next door?
