  1. 1. TYPES OF SENTANCES AND THEIR STRUCTURES BY: Egypt Collins Mrs. Dawson's 4th period class
  2. 2. There are four types of sentences • Declarative • Interrogative • Imperative • Exclamatory
  3. 3. Declarative • A declarative sentence is a sentence that forms a statement • For example: Lyric heard a bat screeching in the cave. • Usually a declarative sentence would end with a period at the end. • This is a declarative sentence because it tells what Lyric heard while she was in the cave.
  4. 4. Interrogative • A interrogative sentence is a sentence that asked a question that is suppose to have a answer or reply • For example: Why is that lion roaring at everyone? • Interrogative sentences usually end with a question mark. • This is a interrogative sentence because it ask a question that is meant to be answered.
  5. 5. Imperative • A imperative sentence is a sentence that gives a strict command or request to another person • For example : April go clean up your room now? • Usually a imperative sentence ends with a period. • This is a imperative sentence because its telling the young girl April to go and clean her room.
  6. 6. Exclamatory • A exclamatory sentence is a sentence that shows excitement in the sentence. • For example : I love your hair! • Usually a exclamatory sentence usually ends with a exclamation mark. • This is a exclamatory sentence because it shows that I’m excited about how her hair looks.
  7. 7. Simple sentence • A simple sentence is a sentence consisting of only one clause with a single subject and predicate. • For example : I am running. • This is a simple sentence because it only has one independent clause.
  8. 8. Compound sentence • A compound sentence is a sentence with more than one subject or predicate. • For example: john bought some new shoes, and he wore them to school. • This is a compound sentence because it has to predicates.
