Imperative Sentence

Imperative Sentence 
An imperative sentence expresses a direct demand, request, invitation, warning, or direction. In an imperative sentence, there is no subject; instead, an order is given to a presumed second person. A declarative statement asserts a claim, announces a fact, explains something, or transmits data. An imperative statement may contain multiple clauses, and these multi-clause statements are commonly conditional sentences. Imperative sentence almost always begins with an imperative verb. Imperative verbs are the root forms of verbs that, when followed by the objects of their sentences, produce imperative sentences. The verb is followed by an indirect object in some imperative expressions. Others don’t have any indirect objects. When utilizing imperative phrases, one challenge that authors frequently confront is that they might come across as domineering, even if the writer does not intend for them to be. This is especially true when communicating by text or email because students can’t utilize your tone of voice or body language to soften the request. Tone can be tough to navigate in written communication, especially when dealing with someone a student never met in person. If you’re unsure how a sentence or longer piece of writing will be perceived by the reader, read it out loud and listen to the tone. It’s also a good idea to have someone else read the work and provide input on the tone.
