Lesson

When I say, “The window is open,” I state a fact, using what is called a Declarative Sentence. A Declarative Sentence is a sentence used in stating a fact. When I say, “Is the window open?” I ask a question, using an Interrogative Sentence. An Interrogative Sentence is a sentence used in asking a question. When I say, “Clarence, open the window,” I make a command; and when I say, “Do forgive me!” I express an entreaty.  In each instance, I use an Imperative Sentence. An Imperative Sentence is a sentence used in expressing a command or an entreaty. When I say, “Oh, that window is open again!” I express some feeling or emotion, using an Exclamatory Sentence. An Exclamatory Sentence is a sentence used in expressing some feeling or emotion. An exclamation point ( ! ) is usually placed after an exclamatory sentence.
