There are basically four types of sentences declarative imperative. These are very important in sentence construction and when making speeches. They include:
* Imperative Sentences
* Declarative Sentences
* Exclamatory Sentences
* Interrogative Sentences
1. Imperative sentences
These types of sentences declarative imperative issue requests or commands and they can also express desire or wish. They either use exclamation marks or punctuated with a period. The extent of the punctuation largely depends on the seriousness of the statement you are trying to make. The following are examples of these types of sentences declarative imperative:
* Don’t wait for me tomorrow.
* Please turn down the volume on your radio
* Respond as soon as you get this message
* Stop whatever you are doing and join the party
* Remember to put off the light when you are leaving
* Meet me at the garden square by 4 PM
* Please don’t lose your hold on the grip
2. Declarative Sentences
These types of sentences declarative imperative make statements, pass ideas or relay information. A single period is used to punctuate them. Declarative sentences are used in writing reports or formal essays. Below are examples of these types of sentences declarative imperative:
* 24th July is a public holiday
* The concert starts in 3 hours
* There are 366 days in a leap year
* My favorite dolor is brown
* It doesn’t rain always at the Sahara region
* Forty-five thousand people attended the concert yesterday
* I love working without much supervision
*My 21st birthday is coming up on the 5th of December
* There are different ethnic groups in India
3. Exclamatory Sentences
They are usually expressed with strong emotions. They are frequently used to stress someone’s emotions and the type of mood he/she is at the moment. No matter whether the emotion is a sad one or a happy one, these types of sentences declarative imperative are used to express such emotions. They are very easy to spot because they always end in an exclamation mark. However, exclamatory sentences should not be used frequently as they tend to make your statements look insincere when used repeatedly.
Below are examples of these types of sentences declarative imperative:
* Please hurry up the squirrel is coming out!
* It is really strange how you think you can finish the job in 2o minutes!
* For havens sake, don’t do that again!
* Wow, the beauty is glaring enough for everyone to see!
* Shut up and listen to your teacher!
These types of sentences declarative imperative are equally very easy to spot because they always end in a question mark. Most of them begin with words like ‘how’, ‘why’, ‘where’, and ‘what’. Some examples of interrogatives include:
* Do you think the boy will come to the library?
* What is the name of the mountain?
* How many courses are you offering this semester?
* Where are they going to hold the Olympics in 2016?
* You are not going to the party tomorrow, are you?
Some interrogatives require open ended answers while others only require a yes or no answer.
