Imperative Verbs Definition and 81 Examples

Philip Kelley

The imperative verbs are the verbs that tell someone to do something. They are generally located at the beginning of sentences used to give orders. This class of verbs create imperative sentences, which are sentences that indicate orders, requests, wishes or commands.

Reading an imperative sentence will always sound like the speaker is commanding someone else. Verbs and imperative sentences leave no room for questions, doubts or discussions; are not questionable, even if the sentence has a kind tone.

Imperative sentences are created with the root of the verbs, without time morphemes. The imperative mode forms one of the four finite modes in the Spanish language. The other modes are the indicative, the subjunctive, and the conditional..

The imperative mood is said to be a defective mood; this indicates that it does not have shapes for all people and numbers.

As mentioned earlier, imperative verbs order others to do something. Most of the times they are at the beginning of imperative sentences in present and simple form (the base form of a verb).

Imperative verbs can be combined with the word no or the word please. Imperative verbs are not always placed at the beginning and if they are combined with these phrases, they remain imperative due to their nature..
