Imperative sentences, sentences that give a command or request, end with a period: "Please go to the store." Exclamatory sentences, sentences that show strong emotion, end with an exclamation point (!): "What a beautiful day!" Interjections, one of the parts of speech, are words or expressions used to express strong feeling rather than meaning. When interjections stand alone as complete sentences, they are exclamatory sentences and end with an exclamation point: "Oh dear!" or "Hurrah!" Any sentence can be changed into an exclamatory sentence by inflection of voice and tone. "Please be careful." can become "Please be careful!" However for this exercise, we will use the usual and customary pattern of words to show imperative and exclamatory sentences.
