    "Come on" - what part of the speech?

    In our lexicon, a lot of words that are often used and widely known. However, we cannot always immediately and unambiguously determine which part of speech they can relate to. For example, the word "come on." Let us consider what part of speech this is and in what cases we use this word that is inconspicuous in our conversation.

    In fact, the word "come on" - what part of the speech? It turns out that this is the so-called modal particle that helps to form the imperative forms of verbs. Examples: “let's be friends” (unit); “Let's go for a walk” (set h.).

    Also, "come on" can be a verb in the imperative: "Give me money!". To distinguish when "come on" is a particle, and when - a verb in the imperative mood, look at the context. If “come on” is connected with the meaning of any verb, then it is a particle.
