Imperatives are verbs used to give orders, commands,warning or instructions.
|To make the imperative, use the infinitive of the verb without "to"|
|To make a negative imperative, put "do not" or "don't" before the verb:|
|Do not talk in class.|
Note that an imperative sentence does not require a subject; the pronoun "you" is implied.
You can also use "let's" before the verb if you are including yourself in the imperative. The negative of "let's" is "let's not".
