Some true imperative verb conjugations:
|Second person singular||parla||vendi||senti||finisci||speak, sell listen, finish|
|First person plural||parliamo||vendiamo||sentiamo||finiamo||let’s speak, etc.|
|Second person plural||parlate||vendete||sentite||finite||speak, sell, etc.|
Except for the second person singular of the first-conjugation verbs, the three forms of the imperative given above are exactly like the corresponding forms of the present indicative.
NOTE: The negative imperative is formed by placing non before the affirmative imperative in all cases except the second person singular, in which case non is placed before the infinitive.
parliamo – “let’s speak” parlate – “speak”
non parliamo – “let’s not speak” non parlate – “don’t speak”
BUT: parla – “speak”
non parlare – “don’t speak”
Imperative sentences usually end in an exclamation mark.
