4 Types of Sentences
4 Types of Sentences 1. A declarative sentence is the most basic type of sentence. Its purpose is to relay information, and it is punctuated with a period. I love drinking coffee. Let's download Hilokal. My mom is very beautiful. They want to eat cookies. He will go to Sri Lanka next month. I love reading books. 2. Interrogative sentences ask questions (or interrogate). These are direct questions, and they are punctuated with a question mark. What is your name? Where are you going? How much are these pants? Can I call you tonight? What are you going to do after our class? 3. Exclamatory sentences express strong emotions. They are similar to declarative sentences in that they provide information, but they end in an exclamation point instead of a period. I said I wanted sandwiches! Wow, you just won a gold medal! You look amazing! We knew you wanted to visit London, so we bought you a ticket! You look amazing! 4. Imperative sentences tell someone to do something. These can be in the form of friendly advice, basic instructions or more forceful commands. Many imperative sentences end in periods, but some of the more forceful demands may end in an exclamation point to highlight the emotion. Stop pestering me! Please shut the door now. Read this book tonight. Finish all your homework before two o'clock. Clean your room. Bring me some flowers.
