Declarative Sentences

A sentence is a group of words that has a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought. There are four main sentence constructions (simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex), and there are four main functions that sentences perform. These functions are declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, imperative.

Examples of Declarative Sentences:

A declarative sentence is a sentence that makes a statement or gives information. This is different from the other types, which form questions, exclamations, or state a command.

Declarative sentences can be simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex sentences. They are the most common type of sentence. Unless a sentence is asking a question, giving a command, or expressing an exclamation; the sentence is declarative.
