What are “Imperative Sentences”?


The word "imperative" is derived from the term "emperor".

Imperative sentences are used to give commands (orders).

Imperative sentences are also used to give instruction/advice/suggestion/warning/invitation/appeal.

Imperative sentences are also used to make a request. You should use ‘please’ (or other polite word) in the beginning or at the end of the sentence to make a request.

An imperative sentence begins with the base (first) form of a verb which is also called verb word. In imperative sentence, subject - ‘you’ - is understood. However, for first and third person imperative, imperative sentence begins with ‘let’.

You can end imperative sentence with period (.) or exclamation (!). Exclamation is used to show direct and firm command.

Imperative’ is one of the three moods of an English verb (indicative, imperative and subjunctive).
