Affirmative (/əˈfɜ:(r)mətɪv/) is a polarity - the positive polarity, which can be contrasted with negative (the negative polarity).

Statements, commands and questions may all use this polarity; giving rise to affirmative statement, affirmative command and affirmative question.

Confusingly, in many pedagogic contexts, "the affirmative" means specifically the "affirmative statement" form.
