Imperatives Nedir?

Imperatives; emir, uyarı, teklif ya da direk talimat veren cümle çeşitlerine denir. İngilizce emir cümlelerinde the subject “you” her ne kadar pek kullanılmasa da hitap edilen kişi çoğunlukla “you” öznesidir. Özelikle birisinin bir şeyler yapmasını ( ya da yapmamasını) istediğimizde kullanırız. Ayrıca imperatives cümlelerde her zaman fiilin yalın hali kullanılır. Şimdi aşağıdaki örnekleri inceleyelim.


  • “Stop talking.” It implies you must stop…

Imperatives: A Verb or Sentence?

Devam etmeden önce tanımlama farklarından doğabilecek olan bir soruyu yanıtlayalım.

Imperatives are a bit of both:

  • The Imperative Verb: Imperative sentence oluşabilmesi için “sit”, “listen”, and “give”gibi bir yalın halde kullanılacak her zaman bir fiile ihtiyaç duyarız.  Burada kullanacağımız “verb” “imperative verb” olarak bilinir.

  • The Imperative Sentence: Burda kullanılan “verb” cümle içerisinde “you” öznesi direk olarak belirtilmemiş ise de yine de tam imperative sentence oluşturmaktadır.

Örnekleri inceleyelim;

  • “Stop!” – Buradaki verb “stop” bir imperative verb olup kendi başına bir full imperative sentence oluşturur.
  • “You stop!” – Burdaki özne”you” vurgu amacıyla eklenmiş olup, cümlenin yapısını değiştirmemektedir.

Why it can be confusing: Often, we simply refer to sentences like “Sit down” as “imperatives” rather than getting overly technical about the specific part of speech. However, when discussing grammar elements, it’s crucial to recognize the imperative verb within the broader sentence structure.

Imperatives Çeşitleri Nelerdir

  1. Polite Commands
  • Adding “Please”: The most common way to make a command less direct and more polite.
    • Example: “Please turn off the lights.”
  • Forming Questions: This turns a command into a request but with an expectation of action.
    • Example: “Would you mind closing the window?”

2. Negative Imperatives

  • “Don’t” + Verb: Forms clear negative commands and prohibitions.
    • Don’t run in the hallway.
    • Don’t touch the hot stove!
    • Don’t interrupt me when I’m speaking.
  • Less Common (But Valid): Using “never”, often for dramatic emphasis.
    • Never forget what they did to you.

3. Suggestive Imperatives (The “Let’s…” Form)

  • Implies Inclusion: The speaker includes themselves in the command, turning it into a suggestion.
    • Example: “Let’s go to the park.”
  • Can Be Open-Ended: Doesn’t always suggest the speaker will necessarily carry out the action themselves.
    • Example: “Let’s clean this mess up!” (Said more as a call to action)

Subject ile imperatives kullanımı:

Imperatives cümleler genelde özne almaz. Bununla beraber, çok genel bir kullanım olmasa da bazen vurgu ya da stylistic bir sebeple birisine ya da bir gruba hitap ederken imperatives cümlemize bir “subject” ekleyebiliriz.


  1. You try and finish the report by tomorrow.”
  2. Everybody listen up!”
  3. You all stay back.”
  4. Someone help me with this, please.”
  5. Nobody move!”

Using Imperatives in Literature

Source: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice

Context: This exchange occurs between Elizabeth Bennet (smart, spirited protagonist) and the snobbish Mr. Darcy, earlier in the book when they dislike each other:


Mr. Darcy: “Do not you feel a great inclination, Miss Bennet, to seize such an opportunity of dancing a reel?”

Elizabeth: ” Not at all. You insult me by supposing I could be so easily persuaded.”

Mr. Darcy: “I meant to be uncommonly clever in seizing the opportunity of your having no partner.”

Analyzing Imperatives

  • Hidden Commands: Mr. Darcy’s initial line isn’t a blatant imperative BUT carries an implied sense of ‘you should.’
  • Elizabeth’s Defiance: She counters with “not at all,” subtly defying expectation, then with the direct “you insult me” as an accusation.
  • The Power Game: Their speech, even using imperatives, is also about class and personality clashes occurring beneath the surface of politeness.
