Transformation of Sentences



Transformation of Sentences :



There are various ways of saying the same thing. Yet, we have to follow certain rules of grammar in order to maintain accuracy and clarity in what we wish to convey. The transformation of a sentence means changing its form without altering its sense.

Let us revise some of the rules.

Interchange of Affirmative and Negative Sentences

In order to change an affirmative sentence into a negative one without changing its meaning, we have to add a negative like ‘no’, ‘not’ or ‘never’.

In order to change an affirmative sentence into a negative one without changing its meaning, we have to use the opposite of the word used in the affirmative sentence.
