The Definition of Sentences with Examples

The question frequently arises in our mind what is the definition of sentences. This is so easy. You have seen the image above. What have you seen?

Just 3 steps. Isn’t it?

  1. Group of words with a complete sense
  2. Starting with CAPITAL letters.
  3. And ending with punctuation marks.

That’s it? We have finished the definition of sentences.

Have you got it? Or feeling a bit problem? Don’t worry. Let’s elaborate and get it with examples of sentences.

  1. John goes to market. 
  2. Does he always go to market?
  3. Oh, God! How disgusting it is!

The first step of the definition tells that the sentences are a group of words. Right. We can see there in all the above sentences, there are groups of words and all of them are making complete sense. It means the first step is fulfilled.

Let’s see the second one whether it satisfies the definition or not. What does it say in the second step?

It always starts with capital letters. That also right. All three sentences start with the capital letters like John, Does, and Oh. It, therefore, also satisfies the definition.

Let’s move onto the third and last step. It says that sentences end with punctuation marks. we can see the full stop in the first sentence and a question mark and exclamation mark in the second and the third sentence respectively. So, it fulfills the definition of the sentence.

On the basis of the definition given above, we can say all the sentences written are the right sentences.

Now, you might get the definition of the sentences. Let us, finally, summarise the definition of the sentences with examples once again.
