4 Types of Sentence

So we’ve looked at the type or style of writing – what about some of the detail within that?  This gets a little bit technical but is worth getting to know, plus to level things up, we’ll really go back to basics by looking at some end of sentence punctuation.  Again, look at these carefully as a quiz will follow.

There are four types of sentences:

  • Declarative – makes a statement – Example: I like chocolate.
  • Interrogative – asks a question – Example: Do you like chocolate?
  • Imperative – gives a command – Example: Give me the chocolate.
  • Exclamatory – shows strong emotion – Example: I love chocolate!
