Basic Grammar: Kinds of Sentences
http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/2837 This basic English grammar lesson will outline kinds of sentences used in the English language. A sentence is a group of related words expressing a complete thought. There are four kinds of sentences: interrogative, imperative, assertive, exclamatory. "Won't you come into the house? Come into the house. We are in the house. What a cozy house! These are examples of the four kinds of sentences." Retired English teacher, Marie, invites us to join her inside her plant filled, music-infused, fire-warmed cottage with its spectacular A-framed view of the famous Discovery Passage. As she makes tea, munches on freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and sits back in her favorite overstuffed chair, she explains why the above examples represent the four kinds of sentences: interrogative, imperative, assertive and exclamatory. Workbook exercises and answer key are provided with this lesson.
