Command Sentences

Command Sentences :

When we speak or write we use words. We make ourselves understood by using words in groups. The study of grammar is basically the study of how words behave in groups.

Look at the following groups of words.

In the field
At 5 o’clock

The cattle are grazing in the fileld.
