Imperative (Command/request) The Imperative is a command Because of a command it does not tell the subject and the verb in direct imperative does not change E.g. “Shut the door” Let the door be shut like go, sleep, open etc so in the indirect speech is preceded by to infinitive) namely to go, to sleep, to open
