    Stay seated

    I have just seen it on the bus the following:
    Stay seated while the bus is moving.
    What part of speech does ' seated' belongs to? And is the you the subject of the sentence? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Stay seated

    'Seated' is an adjective according to www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/seated
    The subject in an imperative sentence is always 'you' according to www.english-grammar-revolution.com/imperative-sentence.html
