PostSubject: :Types of Sentences:   Fri Feb 20, 2009 1:49 pm

1. Sentences can be defined according to their content or intention:
    Declarative sentence: a sentence that states a fact or an idea.
      -The police officer stopped the man in the red car because he was speeding.

    Interrogative sentence: a sentence that asks a question and ends in a question mark.
      -Where are the songs of spring

    Imperative sentence: a sentence that issues a command or makes a request.
      -Please bring me the newspaper.

    Exclamatory sentence: a sentence that issues a command or makes a dramatic observation.
    Exclamation points should not punctuate declarative sentences.
      -What a tiring day!
      -Get away from me!

2. Sentences also can be defined according to their structure:
    Simple sentence: a sentence made up of a single independent clause.
      -It is a beautiful day.

    Compound sentence: a sentence made up of one or more dependent clauses connected by a conjunction.
      -It is a beautiful day, and I'm eager to go outside.

    Complex sentence: a sentence made up of one or more dependent clauses connected to an
    independent clause.
      -Because it is a beautiful day, I'm eager to go outside.

    Compound-complex sentence: a sentence made up of multiple independent clauses and at least one
    dependent clause.
      -I love sunshine, and because it is a beautiful day, I'm eager to go outside.
