    affirmative, negative and affirmative with negative meaning sentences.

    Can someone please give me a clear explanation of what affirmative sentences, negative sentences and affirmative sentences with a negative meaning are. Examples would help. Please donīt say, affirmative is when something is true, as "there isn't anyone in my bed" could be a true fact.

    also my textbook states


    • "Indefinite pronouns with every, some, and any can be used to form negative questions. These questions can usually be answered with a "yes"or a "no" "


    I canīt think of any negative questions which would use either every(one/body/thing) or some(one/thing/body) - are there any?

    there isn't something else i should know - statement not question!
    is there something else i should know? - positive not negative!
