type of sentence

Post by hanuman_2000 » Fri Dec 30, 2016 12:27 pm


A declarative sentence is also known as affirmative and assertive sentence.

A affirmative sentence can be a negative also.

Is there any other name for the affirmative which is also negative?

Could you please explain it?

There is no special term to my knowledge for a negative-assertive sentence.
