  2. 2. Exclamatory Sentences • Exclamatory Sentences convey some type of strong emotion. A declarative sentence filled with emotion and use this punctuation mark (!)
  3. 3. Exclamatory Sentences • It’s called an exclamation mark and is used to show a vast range of emotions…love, anger, happiness, confusion, elation or any other typed of exuberant emotion. • And when it comes to academic writing, such as essays and reports, don’t use exclamatory sentences at all, unless you are using them in quotations.
  4. 4. Rules Rule Number One: • If the noun in your sentence is plural, the correct choice is what, not how. • “What exceptional children these are!” is correct. • “How exceptional children these are!” is incorrect. • What is acceptable with singular nouns as well. • “What an exceptional child this is!”
  5. 5. Rules Rule Number Two: • When punctuating an exclamatory sentence, the exclamation mark should be at the sentence end, not in the middle of the sentence. • “Fantastic, we closed the deal!” is correct. • “Fantastic! we closed the deal.” is incorrect.
