Sentences are group of word that makes complete meaning or sense. It can also be defined as a group of words
that are put together to mean something. A complete sentence generally has/carry a complete thought or thinking.
It conveys a statement or a question. It contains a subject and predicate, a main clause and sometimes a
subordinate clause. When we write or speak, we can express ourselves using different types of sentence so that anyone
that listens will be able to understand us properly. We have 4 types of sentences, they are Declarative, Interrogative,
Imperative and Exclamatory Sentences.
- Declarative Sentences are sentences that give information, share facts, declare or claim something. They are the most common kind of sentences when we write or speak. In declarative sentences, the verb usually goes before the subject. Examples of Declarative sentences are
- Dare saw Bello eat the cake
- Praise went to the County fair
- I prefer doughnut over meat-pie
- Interrogative Sentences: This is a question type of sentence. They always end with a question mark (?). The kind of
information we need can be indicated by what, who, where, when, why and how.
Examples of Interrogative sentences are:
- How do you make doughnuts?
- What is your favorite meal?
- Who is the best singer of all time?
- Imperative Sentences: This are sentences that gives instruction, request or demands. They basically tell someone what to do.
Examples of imperative sentences are
- Feed the chicken once per day!
- Stop feeding the dog!
- Please don’t give the cat food today
- Exclamatory Sentence are sentences in which you use to share strong feelings such as excitement or sometimes pain. They are usually like the declarative just with more emotions involved. You can turn any declaration into an exclamatory sentence by adding an exclamation point. Examples are
- Hey, There’s no more doughnut!
- What do you think you are doing?!
