What is the effect of truncated sentences?
When it comes to communicating, sometimes less is more. Think of the importance of sentence structure – short, simple sentences or truncated sentences can create tension, haste or urgency, whereas longer compound or complex sentences are slower, and often feature in formal texts.
What are the purposes of sentences?
Declarative sentences, or declarations, convey information or make statements. Interrogative sentences, or questions, request information or ask questions. Imperative sentences, or imperatives, make commands or requests. Exclamatory sentences, or exclamations, show emphasis.
How do you use complex sentences?
A complex sentence is formed by adding one or more subordinate (dependent) clauses to the main (independent) clause using conjunctions and/or relative pronouns. A clause is a simple sentence. Simple sentences contain only one clause (verb group). Complex sentences contain more than one clause (verb group).
