GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Imperative Mood?
The imperative mood (abbreviated imp) expresses direct commands or requests as a grammatical mood. These commands or requests tell the audience to act a certain way. It also may signal a prohibition, permission, or any other kind of exhortation. Formulation of the English imperative simply uses the bare infinitive form of the verb. The infinitive form usually corresponds to the second-person present indicative form, with the exception of the verb be. The subject of these sentences can only identify as you (the second person). The use of imperative mood may appear impolite, inappropriate or offensive in some social situations.
