Assertive sentence is called in another name “Declarative Sentence.”
Assertive Sentence OR Declarative Sentence
The sentence through which we can describe a word or event is called Assertive Sentence.
In English language, most of the time assertive sentences are used. This type of sentence starts with subject/ doer and ends with full stop.
Type of assertive sentence
There are two types of assertive sentences. E.g.
- Affirmative/ Positive Sentence
- Negative Sentence
Affirmative/ Positive Sentence: Affirmative / Positive Sentence expresses the positive meanings of the sentence.

- Father was reading newspaper then.
- We should plant trees.
- Rakib can drive car.
- Mohan will swim in the pond.

Negative Sentence: Negative Sentence expresses the negative meanings of the sentence.
Some Tenses do not have “Helping Verb”. We have to bring “Helping Verb” in that tense at the time of writing negative sentence. And “Not” is placed after the “Helping Verb”.
Present Indefinite and Past Indefinite Tense have no helping verb. That is why we use do and does in present indefinite tense, did in past indefinite tense. We place not after those helping verbs.

When the doer is third person singular number, we use does as a helping verb in negative sentence of present indefinite tense. And then we use present form of main verb and do not add s/es with the main verb.

Past Indefinite or Simple Past Tense
As simple past tense has no helping verb, we use “Did” in negative sentence. And then we use present form of main verb.

- He did not attend the meeting.
- We did not get the news last day.
- You did not take coffee at the restaurant yesterday.
- They did not phone me.
