Exclamatory Sentences

I Rock!

Add some sass and punch to your writing with exclamatory sentences.

Write a declarative sentence filled with emotion and use this punctuation mark (!)!

Grammar Rules

In your writing exclamations should begin with either the word what or how. But in everyday talking you’ll find exclamations can begin with any word. But first, two more grammar rules you need to know about.

Rule Number One: If the noun in your sentence is plural, the correct choice is what, not how.

Rule Number Two: When punctuating an exclamatory sentence, the exclamation mark should be at the sentence end, not in the middle of the sentence.
