    Question [Sentence Type] Imperative Sentence?

    "You're coming with me!"
    Is this sentence an imperative?
    It sounds really like one but it does't have the feature of "starting a sentence with a verb."

    No, it's not. It describes an action. It is a declarative sentence. It's the same structure as "You are walking your dog."

    "Come with me!" is an imperative.

    That can be a command in the right context, but it does not use an imperative form.
