Imperative Sentences

The word "imperative" is derived from the term "emperor". Emperors gave commands, and imperative sentences are commands. Imperative sentences consist of predicates that only contain verbs in infinitive form; verb phrases are not allowed. Imperative sentences are generally terminated with an exclamation mark instead of a period.

<Imperative Sentence> = <predicate> = <verb>  <complement>

Examples:
Spend the money!
Go to your room!
Look in the drawer of the dresser.
