Lesson 23: Irregular Spanish Commands

From the Allá en el Rancho Grande Grammar Chapter

Let's take a quick look at a few of the irregular or WEIRD informal commands. These verbs only become weird in the 2nd person (tú), otherwise they follow the same pattern as the subjunctive, which we'll look at later. These little words are very common in Spanish - and can also be used with pronouns and articles - póntelo = put it on, dímelo, = tell it to me, etc). Here are some affirmative commands, where you are telling somebody to DO something.

Telling somebody NOT to do something is a negative command. You can make these irregular commands negative by altering the 1st person present tense verbs a little.
