|Básicamente en el uso de los imperativos (órdenes, sugerencias, invitaciones, etc.) suelen presentarse tres alternativas, a saber: |

|a)  Cuando le PEDIMOS u ORDENAMOS a alguien que haga algo, se utiliza la forma básica del verbo sin el to infinitivo |
|(come/go/do/wait/be, etc). Aquí tienes algunos ejemplos:|
|Come here and look at this!! (¡¡Acércate a ver esto!!) |
|I don't like you. Go away!! (Me desagradas. ¡¡Véte!!) |
|Please, wait for me!! (Por favor, ¡¡espérame!!)|
|Be quiet. I'm working hard. (No hagas ruido. Estoy trabajando mucho.) |
|Goodbye. Have a nice day!! (Adiós. ¡¡Que tengas un buen día!!) |
|El negativo es don't... = do not (don't come/don't go/don't do/don't wait/don't be, etc.):|
|Stay here!! Please, don't go!! (¡Quédate! Por favor, ¡no te vayas!) |
|Don't be silly!! (¡¡No seas tonto!!) |
|Be careful. Don't fall. (Ten cuidado. No te caigas.)|
