Types of Sentences


Declarative sentences

Declarative Sentences

  • Tell you a fact, make a statement, share an opinion or an observation.

  • Some examples:

    • The water is blue.

    • I am looking at an underwater scene.

    • That turtle looks very happy.

    • I saw a sea turtle while I was snorkeling in Hawaii.


Interrogative sentences

Interrogative Sentences

  • Ask a question, and ALWAYS end in a question mark

  • Some examples:

    • Should we go on a field trip to this place?

    • What did you think of the palm trees?

    • Would you like to go to this beach?

    • Do they have a Starbucks location on this island?

    • Could you move over just a bit?


Imperative sentences

Imperative Sentences

  • These are “must” sentences. They tell someone what they must do, or give a command. They can end in an exclamation point, but do not have to.

  • Some examples:

    • Give me that coffee.

    • Stop what you’re doing!

    • Don’t look at me like that.

    • Take me back to Switzerland.

    • Make me some Swiss fondue for dinner.


Exclamatory sentences

Exclamatory Sentences

  • Exclamatory sentences: These sentences always end with an exclamation point, but are NOT imperative. These usually show excitement or high emotions.

  • Some examples:

    • I can’t wait for my birthday party!

    • What an adorable puppy!

    • This is the most beautiful view I’ve ever seen!

    • You are so irritating!


Simple sentences

Simple Sentences

*Simple sentences have one subject (the noun part), and one predicate (the verb part).

Example:

SubjectPredicate

The boy auditioned for the show.

The studentslearned about sentences.

Axelstole my pillow last night.

Cory and Itraveled to Santorini, Greece.


Compound sentences

Compound Sentences

*Compound sentences are made up of more than one simple sentence. Compound sentences usually have coordinators (conjunctions) in between the simple sentences.

The coordinators(conjunctions) are as follows: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. (Helpful hint: The first letter of each of the coordinators spells FANBOYS.)

  • Examples:

    I baked a cake, andthe guests devoured it.

    You will write a story, andI will read it.

    My dog is cute, buthe’s not very smart.

    In Italy I ate pasta,andI visited the Colosseum.


Complex sentences

Complex Sentences

*Complex sentences are made up of one simple sentence and a second simple sentence that depends on it in order to make sense.

Hint: A complex sentence always has a subordinator that tells us the second part relies on the first part (such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, orwhich).

Afterthey finished studying, Sarah and Kayla went to the movies. 

The students are excited becausethey have a dance today.

I am not giving additional homework, since your story is due very soon.

This depends on the other part to make sense.

This can stand alone as its own idea.
