AureliaeLacrimae Posted January 24, 2015 Report Share Posted January 24, 2015 Exclamatives are sentences in which the speaker expresses emotion, usually shock or surprise. They also show how much a speaker is impressed with something. Formation:They’re usually introduced by what (predeterminer in a NP, example 1.) or how (intensifier of an adjective 2. or adverb 3. or a degree adverbial 4.). With what, there is no S-O inversion:1. What a time we’ve had today.2. How delightful her manners are. 3. How quickly you ate. 4. How I used to hate geography. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
