    The imperative


    > 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'):

    • Speak!
    • 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.
