Concept: Sentence Sense III
- A sentence is a collection of words which has meaning.
- A sentence is created by using correct grammar.
After learning about parts of the sentence and how to identify the missing parts of a sentence in sentence sense I & II, it is necessary to write not only sentences but also exclamatory sentences and questions.
Let’s take a look at different types of sentences.
Types of Sentences
There are four different types of Sentences. They are declarative, exclamatory, imperative, and interrogatory.
Today, we will discuss declarative sentences.
A declarative sentence is a sentence that forms a statement. Whenever a sentence gives any kind of information, it is a declarative sentence. Declarative sentences are one of the most used sentences in the English language.
The pattern of Declarative Sentences
The structure of a declarative sentence can be stated as follows:
- 1. Usually, the subject, which can be a noun or pronoun, is followed by the verb followed by the object. Follow this sentence format to write sentences in the declarative form.
- 2. Sometimes, sentences don’t have objects, so in such cases there is only the subject and the predicate
Always remember that there is a full stop at the end of a declarative sentence. Don’t add an exclamation mark or a question mark at the end of the sentence.
