SHOULD THERE BE A QUESTION MARK OR NOT? IT'S AN INDIRECT QUESTION BUT AN ANSWER WOULD BE EXPECTED.

There's a party later if you're interested.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Welcome to EL&U. For us to be able to help, please edit your post to explain what you intend the statement to mean, and why you think there should or should not be a question mark based on your understanding. Otherwise, we are just making guesses. I strongly encourage you to take the site tour and review the help center for guidance on asking strong questions. Our sister site for English Language Learners may also be of interest. – choster May 6 at 18:54
  • One other bit of advice: DON'T SHOUT, it's quite unnecessary and somewhat discourteous. Use bold instead: on our site you can make it bold by putting a double asterisk ** on either side of the words you want to emphasise. :-) – Chappo May 7 at 12:22

No, because it is a declarative statement.

There should be a comma though.

There's a party later, if you're interested.

  • Also, there should be no assumption that an answer is coming. One might simply respond, "Thanks for telling me". – mike65535 May 6 at 19:46
