The Function of Imperative Sentence. How are you going my beloved visitors? Are you fine? As we know that English consists of four skills. They are listening, speaking, reading and writing. However, we also need other skills to support those skills.
In this occasion, I will share about one supported skill, i.e: The Imperative Sentence.
There are some functions of imperative sentence in English, such as:
1. As an order,
2. As a warning,
3. As an appeal,
4. As an advice,
5. As a suggestion,
6. As an instruction
7. And in some cases as a request to another person, to a group of people or to animals.
It is very easy to form the imperative sentence: Simply take the verbs’ infinitive form (without the “to” infinitive indicator). Usually the verb will be placed at the beginning of the sentence.
V + C + !
The examples below are used if a person gives an order to another person or to a group of people.
Come to my house!
Clean your face!
