imperative sentence

posted by .

Helping my son and double checking, could the following 2 sentences be considered imperative sentences?

1. Josh go to your room.
2. You better go to your room.


The first sentence, Josh, go to your room. is imperative. It's a command or request. The subject of the verb go is the understood (You).

The second sentence, You better go to your room. is a declarative sentence because it makes a statement. The subject of the verb, You is stated. Imperative sentences almost never have a stated subject; the subject, you is implied.

The first one is imperative -- a direct command.

The second one is technically a statement (declarative), and it should read "You'd better ... " (the "'d" stands for "had")
