Imperative Mood

Der Imperativ

Introduction

Einführung

Also known as the command tense, the imperative mood is used to issue direct commands, make requests, and issue calls to action.

It has no first-person (ich and wir) conjugation, as it is impossible to issue yourself commands.

Likewise, the imperative also has no third-person singular - er (he) and sie (she) - conjugation.

For sie commands, used in the formal "you" address and for groups of people, the unconjugated verb is simply combined with Sie said afterwards - lesen Sie ("Read you guys").
