1. What is an Imperative Sentence?

An?imperative sentence?gives requests, demands, or instructions; or, shares wishes or invitations for others. Basically, they tell someone what to do! As one of the four main?types of sentences, they have an important role in both speaking and writing.

Imperative Mood

All imperative sentences include verbs written in what is called an??imperative mood,??meaning they give commands. Some of the big ones that you use are ?don?t,? ?please,? ?go,? and so on. Imperatives tell someone what to do or not to do. Look at these two sentences:

Don?t?feed the dog.????????????Imperative verb ?don?t? expressing a commandHe?didn?t?feed the dog.??????Indicative verb ?didn?t,? reflecting a lack of action

Imperative verbs give commands, while indicative verbs ?indicate? (show) things that happened. So, you can?t use an indicative verb to tell someone what to do. Here are some more examples of verbs in the imperative mood:

Please?be quiet.Let?me help you.Go?away!Have?fun!Wait?for me!
