1.39 Kinds of Sentences - Assertive, Imperative, Interrogative, Exclamatory

A group of words that makes complete sense is called a sentence.
Example:
color blue favorite is My. (makes no sense, therefore it is not a sentence)
My favorite color is blue. (makes complete sense, therefore it is a sentence)

There are four kinds of sentences:
1. Assertive or declarative sentence (a statement)
2. Imperative sentence (a command)
3. Interrogative sentence (a question)

Please lend me your book. (a request)
