Transcript of Informal Commands

Los mandatos informales en español
Informal/Familiar Commands
Informal Contexts

Conjugate the verb in the third-person singular (él/ella/Ud.) of the present tense.
Just like with formal and plural commands, you ALWAYS attach reflexive (oneself), indirect (to/for whom?), and direct (whom/what?) object pronouns to AFFIRMATIVE commands.
Simply add "-s" to the formal (Ud.) command
It's that easy!
Remember, when attaching a pronoun, an accent is required over the stressed vowel if EITHER of the following is true:
the original command is more than one syllable (almost all of them are!)
you attach more than one pronoun
There are eight irregular tú commands.
You could just memorize them ...
You could try a
mnemonic device!

Los irregulares
Los pronombres
Just like with formal and plural commands, you NEVER attach reflexive (oneself), indirect (to/for whom?), or direct (whom/what?) object pronouns to NEGATIVE commands. Instead, place them DIRECTLY before the command.
¡No me toques!
¡No se lo digas a mi mamá!
Los mandatos negativos
La formación
Los pronombres
Wait! ... you remember how to make formal commands, right?
"yo" form [traigo]
chop off the "-o" [traig-]
put the "opposite ending": ar->e, er/ir->a [traiga]
No bailes
No duermas
Satan has the pencil weapon!
+ Dracula-style accent
= ¡Sé Ten Haz Di Ven Sal Ve Pon!
Hint: Many irregular tú commands are "-go" verbs without the "-go"!
digo (di)
pongo (pon)
salgo (sal)
tengo (ten)
vengo (ven)
