> Imperatives are used to issue commands. They use the infinitive of verbs (dropping the word 'to'); in the first person plural ('we'), the infinitive is preceded by 'let's' (or: 'let us'):
- Finish your homework!
- Let's eat!
- Close the door!
> The negative imperative is formed by placing 'don't' (or 'do not') before the imperative form; in the first person plural one uses 'let's not' (or 'let us not') :
- Let's not forget who helped us.
- Don't leave me!
- Don't walk on the grass!
- Please don't eat the daisies!
> The imperative has no effect on the word order of the rest of the sentence.
