Oración afirmativa

Spanish 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.

For example:

La casa es grande.
The house is big.

Yo soy profesor.
I am a teacher.

Yo hablo español. 
I speak Spanish.

Ellos leen muchos libros.
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:

¿Está respondiendo? 
Is he answering?


Clever stuff happening!
