Four Kinds of Sentences


Each kind of sentence begins with a capital letter and has a special end mark.


A declarative sentence makes a statement and ends with a period.

An interrogative sentence asks a question and ends with a question mark.

An imperative sentence commands or requests and ends with a period. You is the understood subject.

An exclamatory sentence shows strong feelings and ends with an exclamation mark.

An interjection is a word or a group of words that expresses strong feeling. It is not a complete sentence.
