Lesson 335 - Mechanics - End Punctuation

View lesson on Daily Grammar
 
Use a period to end a declarative sentence.  A declarative sentence makes a statement.
 
Example:
The assignment is due tomorrow.

Use a period to end an imperative sentence. An imperative sentence makes a command or request.
 
Examples:
Hand it in now.
Stop. 

Use a question mark to end an interrogative sentence. An interrogative sentence asks a direct question.
 
Example:
Do you know the man?

Use an exclamation point to end an exclamatory sentence or any strong exclamation. (A strong exclamation is called an interjection.) Many exclamations begin with how or what.
 
Examples:
The assignment is due tomorrow!
Stop!
Do you know the man!
