WHAT IS OPTATIVE SENTENCES? WITH EXAMPLE.

Optative sentences usually express a wish, desire or a hope. It could end with a full stop or with an exclamation mark as well. The latter punctuation expresses that the sentence was expressed in strong emotions.

For instance,

  • Wishing you a very happy married life!

  • God bless you all!

  • Best wishes to all of my dear students!

An optative sentence is one that expresses a wish, hope, or desire. We usually end an optative sentence with a full stop, but again, if we want to show that the words are being spoken with strong emotion, then we can use an exclamation mark.
 
For instance:
- Hurray! My results are out!
- What a beautiful house!
- What a great party!
 
Hope, with the above explanation and the examples, your doubt was cleared.
 
Cheers!
