Imperative Sentence

An imperative sentence asks, requests, or commands someone to do something. An imperative sentence drops the subject.

Sometimes when simply the verb of an imperative sentence is referred to, it is said to be in the imperative mood.

Examples: Go away!

Please go away.

John, come here please.
(John is not the subject but a direct address.)
