    what is it called in grammar?

    I came across a sentence "let's strike a bargain".The question is,what is the word "strike" called (in grammar) with reference to its use here in this sentence,and what's the function of these kind of words?

    It is the bare infinitive of the verb STRIKE

    I think it is just a predicate.
