Chapter - I Sentences

A sentence that we write or speak to make a statement or declaration is known as Assertive Sentence. This is known as Declarative, affirmative sentences as well.

Example: He sat on the chair.

A sentence that we write or speak to make a question is known as Interrogative Sentence.

Example: What is your name?

A sentence that we write or speak to express a command, request or an appeal is known as Imperative Sentence.

Example: Shut up.

A sentence that we write or speak to express human feeling is known as Exclamatory Sentence.

Example: What a joy!

Contemporary English: - The sentences are five types as: assertive or declarative sentences, interrogative sentences, imperative sentences, exclamatory sentences and optative sentences. In the above set of grammar rule exclamatory sentences cover the part of optative sentences which express wish, payer, curse etc where every sentence is written with an exclamation sign at the end.

Usage of Assertive Sentence: An assertive sentence can be positive or negative which is based on your usage to write a sentence, but it should make a complete sense.

Declarative Statement:

It has been raining.

Mona goes to market.

I like writing.

He woke up early in the morning.

Affirmative Statement:

Barking dogs seldom bite.

Honest is the best policy.

Negative Statement:

You should not cry.

I am not learning English.

Usage for creative writing: -1) An Assertive sentence should end with a full stop.

2) An Interrogative sentence should end with a question mark.

3) An Imperative or optative sentence should end with an exclamation mark. Sometimes, the standalone interjection is followed by an exclamation mark. Example; Sorry!
