In this page for learning loops in JavaScript by Mozilla Developer Network the title "Looping code" is translated as 循环吧代码. What is the meaning/function of 吧 here?

  • Exclamation. Used after verbs in exclamatory sentences. 循环吧!代码!Start Looping! Code! Commented Nov 11, 2018 at 7:13

    循环吧!代码!is more like: " 'Let's loop' code"

  • I think 循环代码 is just fine. 循环吧代码 looks odd.

    @神秘德里克 I think there is enough in your comments to make an answer. If I understood correctly you are saying that as a native speaker 循环吧代码 looks like an exclamation, but in this context it looks odd or unnecessary so it could also be a typo

It's a little bit more like Imperative Mood (祈qi2使shi3句ju4) for me.

*sorry I don't know how to type the tone mark

For example,

  1. !我準備好了! (Come on! I'm ready!)
  2. !皮卡丘! (Go fight! Pikachu!)
  3. 奔跑!男孩!(Run! boys!)

  4. 好好享受!(Enjoy yourself!)


This is an exclamatory sentence. (It lakes exclamation mark 循环吧!代码 )

It means "代码,循环吧!"

It seems like that:
