Grammar Rules #Imperative Sentences
The best and the worst thing about grammar is that there is no certainties, no fixed rules. There are rules but then there are always some cases attached with them.
POINTS TO BE NOTED
- Exclamation marks can be used with imperative sentences. But when you do that it makes the imperative sentence, more urgent.
Now since there is an exclamation mark in the end of it, it means wait immediately.
- When a do is used before imperative sentence, it shows the irritation of the speaker.
Do come on time.
- “you”, if used before a command shows the anger or rudeness of the speaker.
You better keep your mouth shut.
But if used in different context it can also show positive emotions.
Don’t you worry about anything.
- You need not to always have a please to show that it is a request. Grammar offers you with two words i.e. while and shall to make a polite request. These are added at the end of the sentence.
We must get to work, shall we?
Be yourself, will you?
- A question mark in the end doesn’t always signifies an interrogative sentence. Sometimes, even an imperative sentence can be ended with a question mark; usually to show more politeness.
Will you pass me the book, please?
Can you do this for me?
Would you mind giving me your bike?
- If the imperative sentence is used in context of the first person you usually use, let me or let us.
Let me help you.
Let us do some work.
- If the imperative sentence is used in the context of the third person, we use let+him/her/them/it.
Let him go.
Let it be.
Let her try.
