Interrogative, Declarative, Imperative and Exclamatory Sentences
The four types of sentences in the English language - Declarative, Exclamatory, Imperative and Interrogative.

The Four Types of Sentences Song
Declarative (Statement!)
Imperative (Command!)
Interrogative (Question!)
Exclamatory (Shout!)

Declarative is when you're making a statement
Usually it ends in a period
Yeah, you're just trying to make it known
For example: "My brother plays trombone."

Imperative is a command or request
Like "Brush your teeth." or "Please finish this test."
And it's easy to remember too
'Cause it's the type of sentence that tells you what to do!

Interrogative is in the form of a question
Like "Are you suffering from indigestion?"
This type of sentence is easy to spot
Because it always ends in a question mark

Exclamatory always shows strong feeling
Like "There's a big hairy spider on the ceiling!"
The thing that sets this sentence apart
Is that it always ends in an exclamation mark!
