The Four Types of Sentences

  • Statements (Also known as declarative statements.)
    • Also known as claims or propositions. Arguments almost entirely consist of statements. These include premises and conclusion.
    • Example: "There is a doggy in the window."
  • Questions (Also known as interogatives.)
    • Example: "How much is that doggy in the window?"
    • Issues raise questions which are answered by the process of reasoning.
  • Commands (Also known as imperatives.)
    • Commands tell someone what to do.
    • Example: "Buy the doggy today."
  • Exclamations (exclamatory)
    • Expressions of emotion.
    • Example: "My goodness!"
