French Affirmative Form
Affirmative describes a statement that uses a grammatically positive construction (as opposed to negative).
An affirmative statement (or declarative statement) expresses a fact or provides information.
La maison est grande. - The house is big.
Je suis professeur. - I am a teacher.
Je parle français. - I speak French.
Elles lisent beaucoup de livres. - They read lots of books.
Note: The term "positive" refers to the grammatical construction, not the meaning of the sentence.
Questions (interrogative statements) and commands (imperative statements) can also be affirmative:
Est-ce qu'il répond ? - Is he answering?
Répondez ! - Answer!
