Reflexive Verbs–Command Forms
• Command forms for reflexive verbs are
constructed the same way that we have
learned before except that the reflexive
pronoun is part of the sentence.
Reflexive Verbs–Command Forms
• Familiar Form
• To form the command form, eliminate the
“en” from the infinitive and add an
exclamation point. Remember the
reflexive pronoun is part of the
sentence.
• Beispiele:
• Sich setzen -- Setz dich!
• Sich beeilen – Beeil dich!
Reflexive Verbs–Command Forms
• Formal Command
• The singular and the plural commands are
formed by inverting the subject and verb and
adding an exclamation point. Remember the
reflexive pronoun is part of the sentence.
• Beispiele:
• Sich kaemmen – Kaemmen Sie
sich!(sing./formal)
• Sich vorbereiten – Bereiten sie sich vor!
(plural/informal)
Reflexive Verbs–Command Forms
• The Wir-Command (Let’s)
• The wir-command form is used when asking for
some action in the sense of Let’s (do
something). It is formed by inverting the subject
and verb and adding an exclamation point.
Remember the reflexive pronoun is part of
the sentence.
