The jussive (abbreviated TEMPLATE:NOCAPS) is a grammatical mood of verbs for issuing orders, commanding, or exhorting (within a subjunctive framework). English verbs are not marked for this mood. Whereas the cohortative applies to the first person (by appeal to the object's duties and obligations)[citation needed] and the imperative to the second (by command), the jussive typically covers the first and third persons,[1] as well as orders (by their author's wish) in the mandative subjunctive.

ExamplesEdit

LatinEdit

In the Latin language, the present subjunctive can convey jussive meaning in the third person (jussive subjunctive or coniunctivus iussivus):[2]

  • Adiuvet "He shall help."
  • Veniant "They shall come."

KoreanEdit

The jussive mood, in the form of the exhortative, can be found in Korean, as seen in the sentence:[3][dubious]

공부 하-.
/gong/ /bu/ /ha/ "/ja/"
study do-TEMPLATE:NOCAPS
"Now, let's study."
