Types of sentence

There are four types of sentence: statements, questions, orders and exclamations.

A statement gives information: Football is a sport. It is a game for two teams.

A question asks something: Do you like football? Is football an exciting game?

An order tells somebody to do something: Don't play football there! Go to the park instead. An order may or may not end with an exclamation mark.

An exclamation is a sentence that expresses a strong feeling: I love football! It's a brilliant game! An exclamation ends with an exclamation mark.
