Imperatives

Description

En inglés no se usa el imperativo tanto como en el español. En general, se usa para dar órdenes, instrucciones o advertencias. Las frases imperativas se construyen de manera diferente a las afirmativas: no se utiliza un sujeto porque se supone que el sujeto es siempre “you” y el verbo principal va en la forma infinitiva.

          2. If we want to include ourselves in the sentence, we use “let’s".

                1. 1. Let’s not fight

                1. Is used to give orders, instructions or warnings.
                  1. The structure of imperative sentences is different because we do not use a subject; it is assumed that the subject is always “you”.
                    1. Therefore, the verb is always in the infinitive form.
