2.41 Types of Sentences

A group of words that makes complete sense is called a sentence.
Examples:
color blue favorite is My. (It makes no sense, therefore it is not a sentence.)
My favorite color is blue. (It makes complete sense, therefore it is a sentence.)

There are four kinds of sentences:
1. Assertive or declarative sentence (a statement)
2. Imperative sentence (a command)
3. Interrogative sentence (a question)
4. Exclamatory sentence (an exclamation)

1. An assertive sentence is a sentence that states a fact. Such sentences are simple statements. They state, assert or declare something.
Examples:
Jan is a student. She lives in a big city.

2. Imperative sentence is a sentence which gives command, makes a request, or express a wish.
Examples:
Go to your room. (an order)
Please lend me your book. (a request)
Have a good time at the picnic. (a wish)

3. Exclamatory sentence is a sentence which expresses sudden and strong feelings, such as surprise, wonder, pity, sympathy, happiness or gratitude.
Example:

4. Interrogative sentence: A sentence that asks a question is called an interrogative sentence.
